Celebrating 60 Years…

Thank you to everybody who contributed to the great success of Friday’s 60th anniversary of the school celebrations. The evening was superbly attended and was enjoyed immensely by all. Over the next few days we will post videos of some of the pupils’ work which was screened on the night. We hope this serves as a fitting memory of such a wonderful evening!

Empty Classroom Day – Collaborative Street Art

On Friday the 17th June, St. Philip’s celebrated ‘Empty Classroom Day’ where each class held at least one lesson outdoors! Class 8 explored street art. Firstly they looked at examples of 3D street art from around the world for inspiration. Then they worked in groups to compose a creative design idea which they could produce on an outdoor surface and in which they would be part of. They worked together with chalk to produce scaled outlines and then added colour. Finally they inserted themselves into their art so that a photograph could be taken.

 

 

Caritas Fundraising Appeal

As part of the RE module, ‘Solidarity and the Common Good,’ Classes 9 and 10 have been working hard to organise a fundraising event to raise money for Caritas. Caritas is an organisation that works hard to help rebuild the lives of people who face many challenges and hardships.

Below is a video appeal to help raise awareness about these challenges and to advertise our fundraising event, ‘Crazy Hair Day,’ which will take place on Friday 1st July. The children used the app Spark Video to bring their research to life. Please watch the video to find out more information.
