With spring term well under way our schools’ project is back in action and, last week, we re-visited St Luke’s school in Brighton where BMA Executive Trustee, Tim Edwards and his wife Farah gave a captivating talk to year 3 students. As ever, the children were very excited to learn about India, our charity and what they will be doing on the course. The children were eager to learn more and a sea of hands followed every section. As the conversation came around to the Holi festival, a real buzz came from the children as they discovered they’d be taking part in their own ‘Holi’ celebration later that term- in the form of a playground powder paint fight!
After the talk, there was a food tasting where the children got the chance to try ‘Poha’, a traditional North Indian breakfast, hand made by Farah. As always, the food brought huge smiles to the children’s faces along with demands for more food and a copy of the recipe! Luckily for the children, the Poha recipe is included in the goodie bag we give everybody that completes the Color Run for us in September.
