Castlebrae Community High School

You are here

In 2015, the International Festival went into partnership with City of Edinburgh Council and Castlebrae Community High School to begin a three-year residency programme at the school. The International Festival is working with each of the 130 school pupils on a number of projects and programmes that will be designed and tailored for their needs, abilities and ambitions. The project is supported by James and Morag Anderson and The Robertson Trust

In 2015, the pupils undertook our Art of Listening and Soul Boxes programmes as well as dance and performance skills workshops throughout the Spring and Summer terms.

A number of art students contributed to the guerrilla knitting project that culminated in a quirky and colourful exhibition at The Hub over the 2015 International Festival period. 2016 has seen the start of mentoring and work experience opportunities for many of the senior students and International Festival and Hub staff.

Every single pupil and staff member at the school has been involved in the From Castlebrae With Love film project. The finished film is available to watch below.
