Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

THIRD Year per­form­ing arts stu­dents at Edge Hill Univer­sity present Gul­liver’s Mar­vels at The Arts Cen­tre on De­cem­ber 15 and 16.

Renowned cir­cus im­pre­sario Mr Gul­liver is com­ing to town with his world-fa­mous troupe of aeri­al­ists, jug­glers, ac­ro­bats and clowns.

Jump aboard ship and ex­pe­ri­ence the won­drous and mind-bend­ing world of Mr Gul­liver.

Minia­ture peo­ple, gorm­less giants, a float­ing is­land and clog-danc­ing horses are just a few of the sights so jaw­drop­ping you’ll scarcely be­lieve you’ve seen.

A bois­ter­ous blend of vis­ual sto­ry­telling, song and cir­cus, Gul­liver’s Mar­vels will pro­vide fes­tive en­ter­tain­ment for the whole fam­ily.

I4P Sem­i­nar: Find­ing Your Voice As A Teacher In The Con­text Of South Africa takes place at the Faculty of Ed­u­ca­tion at Edge Hill Univer­sity on De­cem­ber 11 at 1pm.

Si­no­bia Kenny will talk about the African In­sti­tute for Math­e­mat­i­cal Sciences Schools En­rich­ment Cen­tre (AIMSSEC) and her dis­ser­ta­tion study (MA ed­u­ca­tion, Edge Hill Univer­sity) and other re­search un­der­taken to en­able teach­ers (and her­self) find their voice in South Africa.

She said: “Twenty-plus years af­ter apartheid we con­tinue to strug­gle to ex­press our­selves as teach­ers.

“My view is we are try­ing to find our pro­fes­sional iden­tity and dur­ing the process of con­tin­u­ing pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, shape and steer it.

“The pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment course at AIMSSEC, in my view, is a cat­a­lyst to find­ing our pro­fes­sional iden­tity.”

This event is free, but please reg­is­ter your place.
