Working alongside Chester Zoo, we currently offer school's in the North West two workshops Sing for Songbirds and Sustainable Palm Oil for KST 1 & 2.
Our Sustainable Palm Oil project introduces the idea that making one change at the checkout can help in the fight to save our rainforests. Sing for Songbirds project deals with the plight of the Indonesian Songbirds and how raising awareness and fundraising campaigns can really make a difference to the songbirds.
Conservationists hope that visiting the zoo will be the start of a lifelong conservation journey for many school children, some of whom could go on to play a crucial role in preventing the extinction of wildlife for years to come.
Entitled Make A Change, the project helps children to identify their buying powers as consumers making a change to products that contain sustainable palm oil.
We are helping to create demand in the UK for sustainable palm oil, and through the Sustainable Palm Oil Challenge we are celebrating the companies who are already committed to 100% Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified sustainable palm oil, supporting those that want to be sustainable and making it easier for people to choose sustainable palm oil products.
The young people were working on a WW2 project and our focus became The Evacuee and the many stories of local evacuees to Denbigh who stayed and had families after the war.
In 2016 we collaborated with Communities First and 200 pupils at Ysgol Pendref in Denbigh to bring The Gruffalo Project to life based around this fantastic children’s story by Julia Donaldson.
An intensive week of workshops at the school culminated in a retelling of the story at Theatr Twm O’r Nant.
Using our theatre skills we were able to work together as an ensemble, build relationships within year groups, and increase confidence and self-esteem.
For many of the children it was the first time that they had stepped foot in a theatre, let alone perform on the stage to family and friends.
This piece formed the backbone of The Denbigh Workshop’s engagement strategy for this year.
