icon BBC Novels That Shaped Our World

 

We are delighted that Libraries and Culture will be working with some of our Slough Secondary schools as part of the BBC's initiative, Novels That Shaped Our World. The chosen book for this project is Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman and pupils will be producing creative musical responses to the novel. The project highlights the impact of how books shape and influence our thinking.

We are very excited to be a part of this project and we hope to inspire a love of reading as well as musical composition amongst our young people.

 

We will be planning musical and visual celebrations for Diwali this year. Using our online platform, we hope to engage you in this fantastic festival

Multicultural Arts Festival 2020

We are holding our annual singing festival with a twist! For the first time ever, Slough schools are linking with schools across the world to produce a collaborative video of Michael Jackson's Heal the World.

Slough schools will also be recreating a number of other songs as well as chosen works from the BBC 10 pieces.

"We had to adapt or usual singing festival because of the current restrictions, so we have opened the festival up to any art form such as dance, art and drama to give schools the chance to be creative and ensure that they can still take part. We hope that the songs we have chosen, inspire and uplift our students and give a sense of coming together during this pandemic".
