Dear Parents and Carers,
Mrs Drake and Mrs Mander from our Art Department accompanied year 10 student Hayley Walker-Jones to this event at Central Hall on Monday 27th January 2020 attended by Prince William and Kate and the Prime Minister amongst dignitaries and survivors from around the world. You may have seen the service televised at 7 pm on BBC 2 last night. We were also on Central News yesterday evening. The piece of artwork designed by Hayley and 2 other students Amy Allsopp and Natasha Jones was chosen by an expert panel from thousands of entries from schools around the UK as one of the 75 pieces which will go on a nationwide exhibition tour around the UK starting today in Wales. This is an incredible achievement and has to be one of the highlights of my 14 years as Headteacher. 472 of our students entered the competition thanks to Mrs Drake and Mrs Mander. The final collaborative piece was constructed by Andrew Baker our DT Technician using the cad cam designs from students.
A copy of the sculpture piece is below.
Congratulations to the students and staff involved as this is truly a memorable achievement.
