Wisbech school pupils visit London museum
Textiles pupils at Wisbech Grammar School have been drawing on cutting edge designs at the Victoria and Albert Museum to help to fashion their own creative thinking.
Nearly 50 pupils aged 13 to 18 and five teachers spent a day at the world-renowned London museum in a trip designed to inspire the younger pupils’ fashion illustration project activities and to stimulate the fashion outcomes in examination work.
Organiser Louise Feaviour said the youngsters got a lot out of the trip.
She said:“The pupils made excellent use of the V&A’s gallery and resources, and I was really pleased with their responses to the fashion collections. They did some very high-quality sketching work while they were there.”
n Senior pupils from Magdalene House Preparatory School were among 7,000 youngsters from across the country to perform in the Young Voices event at the O2 Arena.
The school’s delighted director of music, Marie Cunningham, said: “We are exceptionally proud of the pupils’ dedication and commitment. Their singing was superb.”
