Lytham High & performing Art College have been supporting our work for the last few years all thanks to Louise Anderson who was a pupil at Heyhouses Primary School . When Louise left Heyhouses for Lytham High she took The Children of Watamu with her.
Lytham High have worked very hard at raising funds to sponsors 10 children and equip a laboratory in our Secondary School.
15 students and 3 staff will be visiting Watamu at the beginning of July. It will be a very caring, sharing experience for so many children and adults. Our children are looking forward to welcoming the students from Lytham. They intend to teach them Swahili and African dance.In return, Lytham are looking forward to showing our children so many great ideas for music, art, science, drama and design.
The photographs show Cherry Rigeway the Deputy Head Mistress who will be leading the trip and Louise putting their hand prints on the piece of material that will taken to Watamu and hung up at school to show one of the many ways that Lytham has raised funds. Our children will also be doing hand prints for Lytham to take back to their school.
Elizabeth Gomm a journalist from the Blackpool Gazette newspaper will also be joining us.
