Telling tales at ACS Hillingdon
Last week, ACS Hillingdon International School welcomed world-renowned Irish story-teller, Niall de Burca, to deliver a series of captivating storytelling performances and workshops as part of the school’s Artist in Residence programme.
Internationally recognised for his energetic and animated style of storytelling, Niall performed traditional folk tales, as well as fairy tales from other cultures, to Hillingdon students aged between four and 16.
His lively performances inspired both the teachers and students, demonstrating the cultural importance of storytelling. Pupils also participated in storytelling and performance workshops throughout the two-day visit, allowing them to discuss ideas with Niall and work interactively with him.
Peggy Travers, Lower School Librarian at ACS Hillingdon commented:
“Niall is a fantastic and incredibly entertaining storyteller. Students come away from his workshops and performances feeling creative and inspired to harness the storyteller within themselves.”Published: February 21 2017
