Portsmouth teachers take part in Cultural Expo
Date Created: 16th Apr 2019
In March, teachers from schools across Portsmouth took part in a Cultural Expo, arranged by the city’s Cultural Education Partnership.
Held at the D-Day Story Museum (recently shortlisted for the European Museum of the Year Award), teachers were able to meet and have conversations with representatives from 20 diverse arts, cultural, heritage and literacy organisations based in Portsmouth, to learn how to support and enhance teaching through arts, heritage and culture.
Lindy Elliot, Cultural Education Partnership Chair and Library Services Manager, welcomed guests and also took the opportunity to launch this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. There were opportunities to see work by local schools who are working towards (or have achieved) an Artsmark award. Admiral Lord Nelson School, the first in the UK to achieve Artsmark at the highest level (Platinum) twice, gave a brief talk about their Artsmark journey and how it continues to benefit the school.
