Dennis Severs’ House is both a breath-taking and intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, the smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that you enter his house as if you have passed through a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world. Please contact Michele O’Neill once you have booked your spots so she knows to look out for you!       Michele@seanoneill.com – 07519 236 803

D1 Student Zaki-Hussain Hirji Making a Difference  

Through the partnership with Habitat for Humanity Global Village, I have the opportunity to work on a new home building project with a family in need!

Last summer I was involved in community development projects that took place in Kenya. It was incredible to see the difference we made to the people and their lifestyle. 

This August, I am planning to travel to Honduras where my team and I will work with families in the local community to develop the area and aid in the construction of their homes and facilities. The total amount I am raising is £2500.

It seems like the perfect opportunity to carry out this passion of mine and to also see more of the world, meet some incredible people and experience new cultures. 

Considering I am using it as a CAS Project, I am holding a non-uniform day at school on Friday, 29th April. I chose this date as it coincides with Arbor Day (Tree Day), a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. Some of the work we plan to do in Honduras will be to restore the local area by means of planting trees, installing ground sewage lines and clean water facilities that all in turn will make an impact on the environment. I hope to see all the students and staff wearing something green to promote awareness about looking after the environment and how every little helps.
