Every year class 12 enter the challenge of pursuing a project for the year and sharing it with a wide audience in the auditorium at the end of August. At that time, they build installations showcasing what they have been working at anspeak on the stage, often with videos or images accompanying them.
We were deep into the planning and then, for the second year running, Covid lockdown happened. Last year in 2020 we were in the same situation and created a magazine of articles as everybody’s project fitted that format, with photos and writing about their journey. This was shared with the school community via the Friday Flyer and printed out in hard copies for the students themselves. Instead of being ephemeral, disappearing after the night of the presentations, it is now a permanent record, and shows how deep and important such a challenge is, taking them on unexpected journeys, helping them see their future paths in life with much greater clarity, and expressing their intimate trials and joys, with the satisfaction of completion.
Here we are again in 2021, and the projects this year will not fit a magazine format especially with the films and music being created, so we have done something different. We have created a website that exhibits all the work we wish to share, not limited by a couple of pages in a magazine, with students showcasing their projects not just in writing, but through videos and whatever way suits their topic – and personality – best. Get ready to experience this interesting, personal, moving and creative collection from a remarkable group of people.
