Our Lockdown Journey Art Exhibition 8th and 9th of July
Due to the very unusual year that we have all just experienced you might have noticed that we have been unable to allow our School Council to be as active in the school community as has been the case in previous years.
We have two wonderful councillors, Olivia and Oliver, who have been keen to make a positive contribution but, due to Covid19 restrictions, they have not had the full Broadstone Hall Council experience that they deserve. It has been such a shame. All is not lost though! Our Broadstone Hall spirit is back up and running as the restrictions are slowly easing and through these two brilliant pupils, ideas are flowing once more!
They have decided between themselves that they would like to do one big fundraiser for the very worthy cause of FOB (Friends of Broadstone Hall). The format they have chosen is an art exhibition and the theme is “Our Lockdown Journey”.
We are giving every child the chance to explore their thoughts, feelings and experiences and to have a moments pause to sit and talk about how Covid-19 might have affected them and/or their peers.
We have invited a company called Images school art exhibitions who will set up and run an art exhibition which will include each of our pupils’ work from every class.
EYFS and KS1 parents are welcome to come on Thursday 8th July after school and KS2 parents the next day on Friday 9 th July.
Due to restrictions still being in place, visits will have to be carefully timetabled and we will send these times out to you as soon as possible.
The artwork will be framed and available to view in the hall on these dates.
Parents are invited to take a walk through the exhibition and admire the incredible art work that our children will produce. We will still be following Covid19 safe distancing so please be mindful during perusal that you maintain the necessary 2 metres distance and wear a mask at all times. Thank you.
Each child’s ‘piece’ will be framed and on sale for the price of £8.50. Payment will be on Parent Pay only as cash is not accepted on school premises. As previously mentioned, all funds raised by Broadstone Hall will go to FOB, once the cost of framing and displaying the exhibition of 500 plus pieces has been taken off.
We look forward to seeing you there!
