"Out Of The Shadows"

2020

Art Workshop

To signify the importance and poignance of Remembrance Day Julie made Poppies during the Art Workshop

Poetry Workshop

The first acrostic poem was written by the Creative Words group. The second was the famous poem “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae which was performed by the Drama Group

Event Overview

Our greatest achievement so far has been our show “Out of the Shadows” performed in 2018 commemorating the Centenary of the ending of World War 1.

Continuing our theme of remembrance of the wars and more recent conflicts we created an “on-line” performance commemorating those that lost their lives.

The show creatively reflects what it was like for those left at home and those who went off to war.

Many thanks to our tutors, staff and carers who have helped in many ways to support our students during these difficult times.

Book Club Workshop

An Excerpt from Black Beauty about horses that were taken to war and a poem “Charge of the Light Brigade”

Drama Workshop

The Drama piece as based on a performance on Remembrance Day in 2018. This was followed by a two-minutes silence.
