The theme of last week’s virtual Chapel was Black History Month, which we are proud to be celebrating as a school across the curriculum.
The video link to the full Chapel service is available here.
During the service, the Chaplain interviewed three Fifth Form GCSE Art pupils about their artwork inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, pictured above.
The three students, Ajani, Emilie and Otto, spoke movingly and powerfully about their pieces of work, as well as their own experiences of prejudice.
3rd Senior Monitor Oliver (Upper Sixth) read the Parable of the Good Samaritan from in front of the stained-glass window on that theme inside St Paul’s Church across the road.
In relation to St Paul’s Church, the Chaplain also explained some local history, as William Wilberforce MP, who built the church, was responsible for the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833.
The Remove Choir sang a verse of Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah, and The Upper Sixth Choir sang a verse of Amazing Grace, a hymn associated with the end of slavery.
