The day started with Waterstones in the library talking to the student librarians about careers in the book industry.
We have been very privileged to host The Arts Society Bury St Edmunds Golden Jubilee Celebration which was a truly memorable event, and were delighted to welcome along the Mayor of St Edmundsbury, members of the Arts Society and our students family and friends.
Students were very proud as they were finally able to showcase the amazing mural that they worked on with our resident artist Alfie Carpenter. Alfie's own work was also on display, exhibited in its now permanent home located along our stairs in the Heart building, bringing this area alive with colour and imagination.
A massive thank you goes out to Mary and David Payne for giving the school the incredible opportunity to work with Alfie on such a fantastic and inspiring project. We would also like to thank Alfie himself for working with our students and sharing his passion and vision with them and Miss Nield for organising the Artist in Residency project for our creative students. Grateful thanks go to Jewsons and Denny Bros for their generous donations of materials, and everyone who played a part in making this celebration such a wonderful event.
