In 2021 the Festival developed a special additional programme for schools, with events for early years, primary and secondary pupils.
Teachers and Practitioners were able to choose from a range of livestream events and pre-recorded sessions, linked to the Curriculum of Excellence, Experiences and Outcomes. We also included some professional learning sessions during the Festival and competitions for different ages.
