Last week Alway House pupils completed a cross-curricular project during Activities Week for which the theme was “Colour”.
Red, Blue and Green teams were involved in a wide range of activities – developing stained glass, Monet-style paintings of notable school buildings, tartan design, poetry, map design and chromatography to name but a few. The three days of activities culminated in a presentation to a panel of distinguished judges. The Red team delivered a presentation on “The History of Colour – in Christ College”, the Green Team “Colour in Nature” and the Blue team “Colour in the world of Business”. This involved every member of the team, a lot of work and a good level of team management by the leaders.
In the end the Green team came out on top with their presentation on Nature, ably lead by Lenka Halpin and Matthew Jenkins.
Our thanks to all the staff who put in so much time and enthusiasm into making this part of life in Alway so enjoyable and such a valuable learning experience.
