Global Learning Day
On 23rd June, pupils, staff and parents at St. John’s CE First School in Wimborne, celebrated a Global Learning Day. Children of all ages participated in a range of exciting workshops and activities, run by Sharon Muiruri Coyne and her theatre-in-education team. Workshops included: bhangra dancing; drumming; banner making; and drama.
The children were also treated to poignant performances of Jaz and Jagdeep Like Dancing and Surya’s Story, both written by Sharon. These inspirational, interactive productions were set in India, and covered key themes of Fairtrade, the Rights of the Child, tea, the relationship with child labour in the developing world and the general issue of ethical trading.
The day culminated in a memorable ‘Global March’ on the school grounds, where pupils, staff and parents came together to celebrate the thought-provoking work the children had created during their workshops.
