Young people took to the stage to show off what they had learned during this year’s Tendring Junior Ambassadors Project, with a showcase event at the Princes Theatre.

The Tendring Junior Ambassador Project, run by Tendring District Council (TDC), sees Year Five and Six pupils from a number of Tendring schools take part in various activity workshops exploring cultural awareness, throughout the summer and autumn terms.

It encourages young people to learn more about the communities around them and encourages inclusiveness and diversity.

The celebration event, funded by TDC and the Essex Cultural Diversity Project, saw the ambassadors demonstrate activities from Bollywood dancing to African singing – with members of the invited audience of dignitaries and parents joining in.

Lynda McWilliams, TDC Cabinet Member for Partnerships, said the project was hugely popular with the young people who took part.

“Tendring Junior Ambassadors gives children in Tendring the opportunity to learn about and explore the world around them, encouraging them on the right path to be active citizens as they get older,” Councillor McWilliams said.

“The celebration event, as always, was great fun and it is delightful seeing the smiles on the pupils’ faces as they put their new-found skills into practice.

“A big well done to everyone involved.”
