They are a set of smart people who can survive almost anywhere on earth no matter the condition. Wildly travelled and super talented artist.
Nigerians are lovely people even though some are not that good. We have lots of them in South Africa and I personally have lots of them as friends and we get along just fine. I haven’t been to Nigeria and so I can’t say much about it.
Shona M Kelly, Head teacher Kirkkhill Primary School, St Mary’s Road Kirkhill IV5 7NX – It was wonderful experience for the children particularly for the P.5/6 with whom you did most of the activities. The children certainly enjoyed themselves and the whole school enjoyed participating at the end of the day. The experience gave the children an insight into another culture and it’s traditions.
Mrs Sheila Lamont, Headteacher, Farr Primary School Farr, Inverness, IV2 6XJ – Thank you so much for the splendid day of African music and tradition we shared with you at Foyers. The children are still remembering with excitement and affection the dances, songs and stories you shared with us. Many of them came across you performing in Inverness and brought back stories. I hope you continue to enthrall children throughout the country.
Maria Campbell, Class Teacher, Merkinch School, Telford Road, Inverness IV3 8HY – At the end of your sessions, the children were encouraged ask questions regarding the performance. The first question asked was when are you coming back? This sums up the enjoyment of the day. Thanks you for coming to our school.
The benefits of Osun Arts coming to our school, ranged from experiences of expressive arts through to brilliant multicultural experience. Return visits very important for our children.
Increased the children awareness of African Culture. We had a wonderful day. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the parents very much appreciated what had been done when they saw the performance. We would certainly like to see this or similar multi-cultural groups again. This encompassed all areas o the expressive arts in one day. And gave us lots of scope for both. Preparation and follow-ups to the visit.
Jacky Chapman (St. Anne’s Fulshaw, Wilmslow, Cheshire) – Many thanks to the artists who visited the school last week, the children really enjoyed their day and all the staff seemed to think it was a very valuable and worthwhile visit.
Josh (Builth Wells High School, Powys, Wales) said: I really enjoyed African day on the 7th July and this letter is just to say thank you and to tell you what I liked most. I really enjoyed the drumming, tie dyeing and African storytelling. Even though I didn’t get to know how to do the tie dye. I still thoroughly enjoyed it and I’ll always wear my tie-dye t-shirt on till I grow out of it.
