The year six induction day was a huge success on Tuesday at Woking Football Club. Students worked with their new teachers and Lightbox artist Stacey Allen to produce canvasses on the circle values to display in the new school. The canvases contain work from all of the students who all worked extremely well together to further develop the ethos and values that together we will embrace as Hoe Valley School.
Ms Alford explained to the students that they were also blank canvasses and asked them how they would like to fill that canvas: What are they proud of from Primary School that they want the school to know about? What would they like to change about themselves now they have time for a fresh start? What do they want to be in the future?
Students also sampled their first Hoe Valley school dinner with chef Steve Tremblay and got to know other students from other schools. One student said, “the day has been really fun and I can’t wait to see our work on the walls”. Another added, “I didn’t know anyone at the start of the day but now there are lots of people I’m looking forward to seeing again over the summer”.
Artist Stacey Allen concluded the day by saying to the students “I work with young people all the time but the quality of what you have produced today has given me a run for my money!”.
The students are now looking forward to seeing each other again over the summer holidays as the enrichment fun day and the ‘Bear Grylls Survival Day’!
