ARTiculation Teachers Forum

On Wednesday evening we hosted the ARTiculation Teachers Forum in our gallery. This was a chance for teachers to find out about the Prize, as well as hear from Dr Kirsty McDougall, Arts Admissions Tutor for Cambridge University. The ARTiculation Prize is a public speaking competition for students aged between 16 and 19. Each student gives a presentation about a work of art, artefact or architecture of their choice. We look forward to some of Welling School students being part of the award next year!

History, Philosophy and Ethics Exhibition

The History, Philosophy and Ethics department have take over the gallery for the final weeks of the school term. The exhibition encourages students to engage with History, Ethics and Philosophy through interaction and the visual arts. On the opening night there was over 50 parents, students and teachers who enjoyed the exhibition and speeches from students on a range of topics. Amongst the speeches there was:

‘Can hackivism be a source for good?’ by Jeremy Fosten and ‘What did Simone De Beauvoir argue?’ by Carni O’Driscoll.

Well done to the History, Philosophy and Ethics department, and in particular Danny Conway for curating and organising the show.
