During their Creative Arts lesson on Tuesday, 18 May, Union’s Grade 9s were fortunate to be gifted a workshop by drama therapist Paula Kingwill.
The workshop, titled “Arts for Hope”, deals with grief and loss – poignant at a time when Covid has forced us to get personal with the loss of so much.
Paula taught the Grade 9s about the way they can deal with grief – by flocking together in support of one another.
Using hands as a symbol of unity and comfort, the class was guided into creating art that would assist them in this process.
It was a joy to see our learners absorbed in this valuable workshop and, upon the conclusion of the workshop, they expressed their gratitude to Paula for guiding and teaching them.
