Ghosts Story Project
This project was run with the help of Durham City Arts and
the financial support of Awards for All. The "Hungry Ghosts Festival" occurred
on 30th August 2004, shortly before the new term began and was followed by an
intensive course during the Autumn Term which overlapped with the European festival of Halloween.
The aim of the project was to make all children attending the school familiar
with the rich legacy of Chinese ghost stories and tales of the supernatural.
Durham City Arts assisted with a number of special sessions in the early part
of the project and provided use of media equipment to achieve this. In addition to
special sessions the theme of ghost stories and the supernatural was explored
in the school's Gong Fu and Dance classes, in its music and in its language teaching as well.
