Finding a voice through Technology

Lead Creative school scheme: A school to school project

Thanks to funding from the Welsh Arts Council, pupils from Ysgol Crug Glas and Morriston Special teaching facility, took part in a joint school to school project.

During the course of a few weeks, a remix of ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’ by Dylan Thomas was recreated, finishing with a live performance of the piece at Cinema and Co. Pupils helped to create the music using instruments, microphones and the use of an IPad ‘thumb jam’ app. Pupils also enjoyed hearing the sound of their own voices on the microphone. As part of the project, an artist visited Ysgol Crug Glas to work alongside the pupils and they created a range of black and white mark making pictures that were turned into animation and motion graphics to accompany the remix.

The Royal Wedding – Crug Glas Style

Today, to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we held our own wedding ceremony and wedding reception tea party. Two pupils, one from class 1 and one from class 4, stood in for Harry and Meghan and one of our TAs played the part of the vicar performing the ceremony.

The weather held out and the sun shone on the reception, which was held in the central courtyard. Plenty of bunting and flags decorated the area to add to the party atmosphere.

Each class provided food for a buffet and royally decorated a table to sit round.
