On the 20th of November there was an exhibition at The Africa Centre. It was arranged by the charity My Start which supports the refugee camp in Kamuma (Kenya) which holds approximately 200,000 refugees. The exhibition was all about expressing yourself through Art, Film, Photography and Creative Writing. There was art from the refugee camp and from 21 schools in London. A competition was held and Glendower was well represented by Emily (Year 1), Aila (Year 2) and myself. We had a presentation and received certificates for all three of us. There was an inspiring speech by Emmanuel Jal who is a Hollywood actor and rapper. He talked about how he was a child soldier during the civil war in South Sudan. Emmanuel had a dream of being part of a solution to help solve the problems in Sudan. He was smuggled out by an British aid worker and
fled to Kenya to achieve his dream.
Emily (Y1) was given a ‘Special Mention’ (i.e. third place) in the competition in the Primary School Category for her piece on Flags!Previous PostNext Post
