As part of our inaugural Culture Week last term, the Senior Prefect Team ran a creative competition, encouraging students to share their thoughts and reflections on their roots and heritage. We had such a wonderful array of entries from across the year groups that Ms Geldeard and the wider team decided to create an exhibition to recognise and celebrate all the work.
This week, The Culture Exhibition opened in our Shaw Gallery and will run for two weeks. The walls now display a colourful array of photographs and drawings alongside a wide range of creative composition: From poetry, stories, diary entries, letters to past relatives, projected videos of family trips and festivities, to presentations on language, beliefs, food, music, fashion and much more.
At the centre of this exhibition, lies our community mural, a map which visible highlights with a multitude of colourful dots, the truly world reaching connections and cultural roots of our staff and students.
Antonia Geldeard, Head of Sixth Form, praised all those involved: “It has been wonderful to see so many of our staff and students visiting the exhibition and taking the time to absorb all these fascinating snapshots of our multicultural community. I’m proud of our Senior Prefect Team for all their hard work in collating this exhibition and I thank so many of our students for sharing their thoughts and feelings with us so that we can recognise and celebrate our diverse school.”
