Wishing you all a wonderful Summer Break!
National Youth Orchestra Day- Friday 8th July
The whole school was buzzing with energy and excitement, when members of the National Youth Inspire Orchestra visited Selly Park for the day. In the morning, students enjoyed taking part in music workshops led by the National Youth Orchestra Musicians and the music made was of a very high standard indeed. In the afternoon, the girls enjoyed listening to a performance of Nino Rota’s ‘La Strada’. The whole hall erupted with screams and applause at the end of the performance and at other times there was complete silence in the room as they were captivated by the Orchestra’s terrific performance. The orchestra performed again in the evening at the MAC, and many of the school attended this to hear the orchestra again. The orchestra also said they really enjoyed their visit to Selly Park and loved the energy and enthusiasm our students brought to the day.
This term the Art department held the third GCSE Art and Design exhibition and it was a huge success! It was so lovely to see so many parents, teachers and students attending the event. The quality of the work was exceptional and it was great to see such a wide range of independent styles and outcomes. All of the hard work, dedication and commitment really did pay off. We had a representative from the Barber Institute of Fine Arts and the Royal Birmingham Society of Art scrutinise the year 11 work and select their three favourite projects. This year we have also had five pupils selected to have work displayed in the Inspire 16 Exhibition that takes place in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery this summer. Well done to all of the year 11 pupils and to all of the year 10 pupils that helped to organise the event.
