All Hallows High School link up with The Lowry

Lisa Teasdale – Business & Enterprise Co-ordinator, All Hallows RC talks about the relationship between All Hallows and The Lowry. “As a Secondary School in Salford, we find The Lowry to be a fantastic learning resource on our doorstep. The workshops on offer are vast and the staff are always willing to tailor activities to suit any particular area of study. The Lowry accommodated a whole year group of our pupils as part of an art enterprise event where pupils took part in a variety of workshops and then shared their work and ideas back in the classroom with their peers.  This proved to be a valuable learning experience which the pupils thoroughly enjoyed and many of them used as part of their course work.”

Lisa went on to say “more recently, our school has been lucky enough to take part in the ‘War Horse’ project which included four inspiring and varied workshops such as scriptwriting and puppetry and also tickets to watch the National Theatre production at The Lowry. This brought the story to life for those pupils studying the novel within English lessons and enabled them to understand and appreciate what life was like during World War I”

 “I have visited The Lowry loads of times with school and have done something different every time.  It is always so much fun that we forget we are actually learning!” Year 9 pupil – All Hallows RC
