Project 80 Launch Event - 14th March 2018
We were delighted to welcome Phillip Venning from the Heritage Lottery Fund to the school on 14th March for the launch of Project 80. Phillip Venning was joined by Peter Hains, former principal of the school and now Chair of the Henry Morris Memorial Trust, one the school’s project partners. Another partner, RIBA East, was represented by Delyth Turner-Harriss, Partnerships Manager, who is working with the Cambridge Association of Architects to recruit the architects who will work with students on the project.
The plan is to make a film documenting the project activities and capturing the memories of those who either attended the school or worked here, and students will be working with Peter Harmer, a former pupil of the school and now professional filmmaker.
Full credit must go to the Year 8 students who organised the event, gave an overview of the project in a superb presentation and introduced the guest speakers. The event was well attended by the Year 8 students who are keen to take part in the project, their parents and staff, and all were able to enjoy a delicious array of refreshments, including a wonderful cake, all made by the Year 8 organisers, supported by Miss Minaeian
Project sessions begin on 21st March and we will look forward to keeping you updated on project progress.
