We had three outstanding days of movement, environmental, interactive story-making and digital sound-scape workshops within the grounds of our private estate with Year 9 pupils from Drumragh Integrated College and Castlederg High School. Students and teachers were inspired during the programme as they explored through The Arts together. Doorways to self-confidence, new interests and individual abilities were opened, wide and new relationships were fostered. Well done to everyone involved!
Between May and June 2023, we welcomed many KS2 classes and their teachers to explore the theme of ‘Reforestation of the Imagination’, and the element of earth. It was a joy to watch the children collaborate with each other through Creative Writing, Poetry, Drumming, Dance, Visual Art and Sculpture within the private grounds of Baronscourt which continue to embrace and inspire us. Children and teachers left feeling inspired and connected having spent time creating, exploring and learning new skills with other schools, cross-community. Well done to everyone involved!
The Pushkin Pathway Programme will be held at Baronscourt Estate between May and June 2022.Each Pushkin Pathway day will be cross-community and will include four Post-Primary Schools from Co. Tyrone.What makes Pushkin Pathway so special is that it builds a bridge between technology and the environment which provides a unique experience for Post Primary students which they will always benefit from.
“Through Pushkin, children are able to explore their imaginations and stories, helping to unlock their creativity and inspiration. The need for inspirational learning from a young age is vitally important and will help children to engage with their imaginations and find their voice.”
