Kerry Schools create a Buzz with "Bee Creative"

Four Kerry schools are one of four recipients of the Arts in Education Portal Documentation Awards. Whilst taking part in the 2018/2019 Teacher and Artist Partnership CPD Summer Course & Residency Programme, Firies N.S, Killahan N.S, Dromclough N.S and Lenamore N.S applied for the Creative Clusters initiative. Their subsequent project, ‘Bee Creative’ exemplified two Arts in Education initiatives. The show created somewhat of a buzz in the national folk theatre, Siamsa Tíre on 3rd April 2019. Creativity and learning blossomed with wonderful colourful props, visuals, poetry, dancing and acting. Congratulations to all the teachers and especially the 94 children involved who portrayed the importance of bees in our world through the various art forms.  For more see:
