Studio Fix @ Old Bexley Primary School

On Wednesday 20th January a group of Studio Fix performers visited Old Bexley Primary School and presented an entertaining showcase of their songs.  Their performance made a lasting impression on the pupils and staff of the school.  5th LyrikImage1 performed ‘Hash Tag’, with the audience joining in with the chorus and actions, Ollie & Sam sang ‘Sail Away’ and, the now famous, ‘Chicken Shop’ was performed by The Gas Tanks.

Hurstmere has since received fantastic comments and appreciations for the Studio Fix performance. 

“Not only was it a pleasure, but such an inspirational experience for our children, who clapped and sang along.”Image2

 

“The performance yesterday was amazing. The boys represented Hurstmere impeccably as always.  They are so polite, well-mannered and smart.”

“The children loved the songs and they could be heard singing them long after the end of the show.”

“A big well done to all of the boys and staff involved and we look forward to collaborating with Hurstmere again in the future.”

A massive thank you goes to Mr Gilbert and the Music Department for their hard work and support; and to the pupils for the excellent way in which they represented the school.

Totally Thames - Rivers of the World!

The  Rivers of the World project is run by the British Council, and aims to connect young people across the world with their local rivers and global partner schools. Hurstmere Art Department was successful in securing funding for our pupils to participate in this year's project. Twenty of our 'gifted and talented' pupils from year 8 and 9 took part in a two day Art workshop led by the visiting artist Shona Watt. The boys tackled the theme 'Resourceful River' - they investigated the range of fish that inhabit the River Thames and considered the issue of plastic pollution in our rivers and oceans. They then produced an impressive body of sculpture in response - working to recycle waste plastic water and drink bottles into art work. The resulting work was digitally recorded by Shona and combined into a photo mural. This has subsequently been exhibited as part of the Totally Thames Festival - in the GLA City Hall and on the South Bank in front of the Tate Modern! Our photo mural has also been sent electronically to be exhibited in Lagos Nigeria along side the work of our 'Rivers' partner school New Hall Academy. The project continues into 2018 when Hurstmere boys will get another opportunity to work alongside a professional artist - this time responding to our partner school's river '5 Cowrie Creek' in Lagos. Well done and thank you to this year's participants - Louis Dunk, Harry Turner, Alfie Peacock, Max Kelsey, Sam I'Anson, Sami Salih, Sebastian Neofitou, Joe Greenfield, Ben James, Frankie Svoma, Harrison Prangnell, Scott Durden, Louis Clark, Andrew Fastiggi, Sam Parsons, Jesse McKenna, Marcelo Pita, Luc Hulf, Max Boles and Oscar Davies - their conduct, attitude and creativity made them exemplary artistic global ambassadors for Hurstmere School.
