Pupils, staff and families gathered in the Stogursey School Hall towards the end of the Autumn term to launch ‘Shine Fest’, an exhibition of art made by the pupils during the term-long ‘Somerset Stories’ project funded by the Hinkley Point Community Fund. ‘Somerset Stories’ was run by Halsway Manor National Centre for Folk Arts and involved the Stogursey children working with a writer, an artist and a film-maker to create artworks inspired by the past, present and future of Stogursey and the surrounding area. Some of the very youngest pupils performed a folk-inspired piece for the audience.
Parents who visited the exhibition said how they loved the different artworks and the short film that featured of the Stogursey pupils. One parent commented, “Brilliant! Love the pixies and the variety of medium used. A wonderful experience for my daughter. Thank you.”
