17 October 2019Year 9 Depth and Discovery dayFor their Art and RE Depth and Discovery day, Year 9 students visited All Saints church in Peckham to discover the ways in which they support the community.
Too show their gratitude to the church the students spent the rest of their day creating an art installation in the form of a giant plait.
The process of making the plait created a sense of community and collaboration amongst year 9, who sang and danced as they weaved together colourful fabrics representing diversity.
When the art installation was complete, the 90 student and staff contributors walked the plait through Peckham to deliver it to All Saints church. Market stall holders and passers by looked perplexed and stopped to watch, smile and say hello.
When we arrived at the church carrying the plait the staff were overwhelmed and even more so when the installation was in place.
A reminder of community, vibrancy, fun and diversity.
