The Goldies Cymru Schools Programme has been running in
Wales for a number of years but during Covid this work was
severely impacted. Prior to the pandemic, the National Lottery Education Category award winning 'Armistice Cantata'grew out of a creative project involving teachers and their pupils in schools in Cardiff commemorating the end of the first World War.
The programme brought about a real sense of authentic learning about the impact that WW1 had on Cardiff and its residents. Schools involved went on to perform at the National Service of
Remembrance in St David’s Hall, Chapter Arts Centre and many other venues in South Wales. Since then, the charity and the older people have supported further learning through its playground games project and links to living history.
Now, in 2023 the charity is excited to bring to you a new project. The programme focuses on belonging and bringing a sense of 'Cynefin' to your school with to bring older people into your community, to play, learn and work together and to find enjoyment in spending time together.
It is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
