Beacon of Hope Project
Continuing with the Aura/Beacon of Hope for Stockport my idea has now been brought to life by Poynton High School and feeder Junior Schools in the area. The ultimate aim of the project is to lift the spirits of everyone involved and also raise much needed funds for charity.
Working with Poynton High School and related junior schools in the area, I am leading a project known as – The ‘Beacon of Hope’ – this is a physical beacon built at all associated schools – Poynton High, Lostock Hall, Vernon, Pott Shrigley, Adlington, Disley, Heaton Special School and Lower Park – it will show a collage of artwork and writing as the aim of the project is for all pupils to work in either art, creative writing, dance, drama or music to express their own ‘hopes’ for the future.
Myself along with other members of the sixth form Committee from Poynton High presented relational assemblies and support with the project.
Finally, I worked with transition year 6 pupils to create a performance based on the theme of hope for The Beacon of Hope extravaganza which was held at the Auditorium at Poynton High School – this involved performances from Poynton High and many community groups – all related funds for ticket sales will go to St Anns Hospice, Francis House Trust and The India Project.
My own ultimate hope is that Poynton High and all related schools become a flagship and Beacon for other schools throughout the UK to follow in their footsteps and create their own ‘Beacons of Hope’ – I am currently progressing this with other schools and I will advise any relational developments. Meantime owing to the success of the project Poynton High have extended the ‘Beacon of Hope’ to run over the next 3 years.
