Lincoln Minster School was paid a special visit after joining next year’s Lincoln Knights Trail Education Programme.
Lincoln-based social enterprise, The EBP, gave Lincoln Minster School an exclusive viewing of the knight ahead of next year’s trail.
The EBP is the official education partner for the Lincoln Knights’ Trail and in partnership with Lincoln Business Improvement Group (Lincoln BIG) and Wild in Art, it has created an education programme to complement the trail and embed Lincolnshire’s local history into the school curriculum.
The education programme will run alongside the main knights’ trail and as well as receiving their very own sculptures to decorate, all participating schools will also receive an education pack full of resources and ideas to use in class.
Alicia Corral, Teacher of Art, Graphics and Photography at Lincoln Minster School said: “We are excited to be a part of the Knights’ Education Trail. To have the opportunity to be a part of this project from the start is a great opportunity to engage a range of students with public art and the city’s history. Our students have already been enthused by seeing the knight and are now busy discussing ideas for decorating it and bringing it to life.”
As part of LMS’ involvement in the education programme, the school will receive two half-size knights to decorate and display across Senior, Prep and Pre Prep.
The education programme will be launched at next year’s Lincolnshire Show on 21st and 22nd June where the half-sized knights will form a mini trail around the Showground. The knights will then be moved to cultural and prominent venues across the city of Lincoln where they will be displayed until September, complementing the main full-sized trail.
