The Aspire Project at Hassenbrook Academy
Date posted: 29-02-2012
THEY ARE very proud of their students at Hassenbrook Academy. To illustrate this photographer Simon Clarke and a number of the students have been taking photographs of the students in action over a number of days recently.
When they are ready, the photographs will be printed on large canvases and displayed around the school. At schools Simon has worked with previously, the pupils have really valued the images of themselves and adopted a sense of pride in their school even more than usual .
This project is not a prospectus event. It is about capturing students enjoying learning, their friendships and just being themselves. In essence, they are creating a voice, a message about who they are at Hassenbrook Academy.
YT followed the team for a morning to capture them at their work and to speak to staff and students to see what they hoped to get out of the project.
