What a last week of the year it has been for Year 10! As part of our commitment to letting our students learn through a variety of styles, we set a project for the whole year group to put on a mini fashion show in 3 days!
Day 1 started with a series of workshops attended by all students covering Communications, Photography, Fashion Styling & Make-up and Events – with the latter two led by industry professionals in their field! Once complete, students ranked them in order of interest, ready to be placed into small working groups at the start of the next day.
Once in their small teams and led by our brilliant and creative teaching staff, our students set about learning what they needed to do to make sure the show would go on.
Whilst the events team busy planning all the moving elements needed to host a show, the fashion team spent two days modifying the outfits and hitting upon make up styles for their willing models and the communications team learned all about some of the darker sides of fashion and went on to produce a series of socially responsible t-shirts with a message to end child labour! Whilst all of this great and varied activity was taking place, we had a small and committed team of photographers chronicling the build-up.
Day 3 – Showtime! The day started with great anticipation with some nerves that all of the elements would come together by 2pm for the show. Well, come together they did! Our students worked with brilliant focus and commitment to host an entertaining and fun show for all!
We are incredibly proud of our Year 10 students, some of whom have asked if we can something similar next year – watch this space!
