On Friday 6 November, Year 10 students presented their major projects to the school that they had been working on since lock down. These individual creative tasks were in keeping with Kindlehill’s current focus on Necessary Traditions and Sustainability and were inspired by the theme, ‘The more beautiful world our hearts know is possible’.
The students were each guided by a mentor and then worked independently, completing their projects at home. Students researched, developed, produced and presented a work incorporating theoretical, artistic and practical components, the process and procedures of which were encapsulated in their Project Journals.
This is the first time a Year 10 cohort has undertaken the Major Project and it will now continue each year with a new theme. The importance of a Project Journal cannot be underestimated, as a similar process is required when completing the Stage 6 courses of Visual Arts, Design & Technology, Industrial Tech Wood and Society and Culture in Years 11 and 12.
