Bourne Community College Photo Study Day at Chichester Cathedral

 an example of Responsible Photography working in education

A very busy day! Both students (and teachers) participated in a variety of activities as well as enjoying an opportunity to take photographs in Chichester Cathedral. On a previous photo-study day there was an unexpected highlight for students who bumped into one of the 'Horrible Histories' stars, who happened to be visiting the Cathedral - he happily posed for photographs and told everyone about the new series! This time there was a fascinating talk by one of the Cathedral volunteers, which really set the scene for the activity brief. The students were spell bound and it was great to hear so many questions asked! 

At the end of the photo-study day, students were given a homework task - to choose their favourite photograph for a  competition. A month later, they got together with their teachers and Gail to find out whose photographs had been selected for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. All the photographs submitted for selection were fantastic - with lots of individuality as well as  evidence that students had listened and put into practice what they had been taught. The result was a selection of beautiful phtographs - making it  very tough to select the winners. The final choice was made by Gail Ward and Chichester Cathedral's Marilyn McInnes.  Some of the photographs were used in the School Friends newsletter and the Cathedral Magazine - with full credit to the photographer of course!

Here are the selected winners, but very well done to everyone involved - it was a great day! Thank-you
