Celebrating the Collaborative Project

On Wednesday 25th May 2011 some of the Culture of the Countryside team including Bee Farrell (community engagement manager), Matthew Robinson (film maker) and Georgina Warne (artist) returned to Corton School with Anna Woodhams (Halcrow planner) and David McGinnis (Waveney Pathfinder) to reflect and celebrate the collaborative project. The work with Corton had been part funded by Waveney Pathfinder and was a very positive case of cross organisational working to focus on the identity and health of an area. We all gave short visual presentations connecting up memories of our visits, the learning opportunities they provided, global comparisons and historical references. The pupils then read pieces they had written about the project-describing the local walks, science experiments, object handling, drawing, talking and drama. After the presentations we went to unveil 14 of the tiles made by the pupils with Georgina, which had been fixed to the outside wall of the school’s newly acquired village hall.
