At the end of December Bancroft’s school has celebrated the 14th Taal initiated by the Hindu, Sikh Buddhist and Muslim Society. The central theme to the fete is enjoying the beat of life. 200 pupils were performing dance, music and drama to an amazed crowd. Students of Bancroft’s say they would not be able to imagine school life without the annual festival involving pupils year 7 to 13. Taal combines love for the Arts with an interest in foreign cultures and different dancing styles. Students enjoy the variety and cultural richness that can be found in Woodford Green. Additionally the school raised 11.000 Pounds for three charities while also having fun rehearsing for the performance. The headteacher is proud of the pupils and looks forward to next year’s performance.
