Siver Arts Award Students run Easter Craft Workshop
Student Organisers: Juhi Rastogi, Hazel Jones and Sarah Broster sent us this report of the Easter Workshop they planned and delivered as part of their Silver Arts Award.
“With Easter coming up, Year 13 Personal Opportunities Programme (POP) students held an Easter themed arts and crafts workshop for Year 5 and 6 students from local primary schools.
The event began with a quick tour of Invicta and a chat about the transition to secondary school. This was followed by an exciting afternoon making Easter themed projects, such as fluffy bunny ears and Easter baskets, lined to fit cuddly pompom chicks. The workshop involved the students getting “hands on” by designing and assembling different components and decorating them. The Year 13 students supervised the primary students throughout the afternoon, helping them make the projects and use the glue guns. After a quick drinks and cake break, our visitors competed to finish the Easter activity pack, completing challenging puzzles and putting their art skills to the test, drawing Easter bunnies and chicks.
The day was a great success, as both Year 13 and primary students thoroughly enjoyed designing and crafting together. Our visitors also had the opportunity to learn about Invicta and of course made new friends from different schools. The afternoon ended with adding the final touch, filling their Easter baskets with mini eggs and sweets and taking a photo of the 'bunnies' with a certificate and their creations to remember the day!”
Thank you to Year 13 students who organised the event and to the staff involved in supporting them.
