Orphans in Need: Fundraising sale!

Each academic year, students in their second year at Cadbury College choose to take part in an enrichment activity.  Students can choose from sports options, work experience opportunities, something to complement their learning or support a portfolio of charitiable organisations. This year, the charity enrichment group consists of 20 students, all eager to fundraise and support local, national and international charities by hosting events, sales and activities both in and out of college.

Dedication and determination from our drama students!

Second year Drama students are working towards devising their practical project which will be staged in December 2016. The piece was inspired by a visit to see Kneehigh Theatre’s Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo at the Birmingham Rep on Thursday 13th October.

Students’ work is also inspired by Frantic Assembly who came into college and delivered a workshop with them, and Theatre Complicite whose work they are studying as part of the course. They have just built their set and have written the script themselves.

Ravinder Jhite said, “The students have worked as a strong team and shown exceptional commitment and organization. They have come into College during half-term to rehearse their piece for a full day of hard but enjoyable work on staging the play. The play is about childhood in the wild and features some stunning scenes.”

Students encounter a world of diversity!

Yesterday, twenty six A level Art, Photography and Creative Writing students visited 3 very diverse galleries.

Reflecting on their adventure, the students and staff talk about their exeriences during the day:

"We began in Reading Gaol where there was an exhibition titled “ Inside” where various famous contemporary artists and writers responded to the theme of being inside a prison and also the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde and the work he wrote whilst serving time from 1895-1897 for being gay. It was quite an eerie and claustrophobic experience for most of us but also a great opportunity to witness how grim life would have been, being confined to a very small cell for 23 hours a day. The accompanying artwork and text was powerful and evocative.

 

Our next stop was the Oxford Modern art gallery.
