The African Art Residency on Friday was the best day I have had at Eastford Road School so far this year! We have been enjoying the artwork from the gallery and the school-wide performance was outstanding. The kindergarteners loved the music and it was great that they were included in the last song. Seeing them dance and shake their instruments was heartwarming. They loved it! The drum/instrument lessons went very well too! Not only did the students enjoy it, but the teachers had fun watching as well. Some teachers even joined in when there was an extra instrument.Kathleen E.P. Small
