Project Zulu

We recently had the absolute pleasure of welcoming back Project Zulu to QEH for the day, having had them before to visit back in 2015.

Every other year Project Zulu bring a choir of incredibly talented children from various partner schools in KwaZulu Natal to tour the UK with their traditional Zulu songs and dances. These choirs wow audiences when performing in concert venues, busking in cities, visiting UK Schools as well as recording and selling their own albums. All funds raised during the tours are used to support development projects at their South African schools including building classrooms and sports facilities, setting up libraries, IT classrooms and much more.

The choir performed for the year 12s in assembly then led some singing and gum boot dancing workshops with our junior choir during the morning. This was followed by performances to all students in years 7-10 (and the junior school). During the afternoon they enjoyed participating in Art and PE lessons with our students: two subjects they don’t learn at their own school.

It was an incredibly enriching experience sitting back and listening to these young talented singers and dancers perform a variety of traditional Zulu dances and songs. Considering they were days away from the end of their epic 3 week tour (and we were informed that they had only had one day off in all that time!) they still had incredible energy which was really felt by the appreciative audiences of students and staff.

Ollie is a QEH 'lifer', as he joined QEH Juniors in Year 3, eleven years ago.  It's been great to watch his development through the years, both on and off the pitch.

Thank you Friends of QEH!

Thank you for making Alec’s first week so enjoyable. He’s loved every day and has come home really happy. In particular, he’s said the other boys have made him feel really included and like he’s always been there.
