A slideshow of the team at work

These pictures were taken during one of our several visits to William Harding Combined School, Aylesbury, Bucks., in February 2006 (we’ve been delighted to return every year since!). We hope they give a flavour of the atmosphere of at least two elements in Mexicolore’s Tócuaro programme - preparing Mexican food the traditional way, and learning a Mexican folk dance...

Whilst the session is now run by different team members, the programme, tried and tested in hundreds of schools, remains at heart exactly the same!

Our thanks to Zoe Sale, her colleagues and all the Year 2 children who took part.
