Lord Mayor’s Parade Romance Event

The day has finally arrived.  Today we launched our Lord Mayor’s project with guest expert speakers (CEFAS and Norfolk Wildlife Trust) and a Q&A with our arts partners Marcus, Zara, Ray, Holly and Alysha.  The day started with an assembly where Marcus from Sistema Norwich spoke to us about the traditions of carnival and parading in the UK before telling us more about the history of the parade in Norwich, which includes the famous snap dragon which remains a fixed feature of the city’s parade to this day!  After break the children enjoyed a carousel of activities and micro lectures as they found out more about the project theme.  David Carlin from CEFAS spoke about the importance of creating and maintaining healthy oceans. Georgie from Norfolk Wildlife Trust spoke about the amazing chalk reef off the coast of north Norfolk.  Our very own Ms Denney spoke about the extraordinary biodiversity that can be found in our oceans.  The message from children and staff alike was that it was a remarkable day. Tomorrow we start our workshops.  Stay tuned!
