In the hours and minutes before the opening of our class exhibition, many of us started to feel a little nervous! Sharing individual projects for the first time, some of us began to wonder what people might think, ask or comment on.

Our fears soon passed and turned to excitement as our room filled with parents and children from across the school community. Many of us found ourselves talking to people we wouldn’t usually talk to and felt especially heartened and encouraged by the compliments and positive feedback we were given by people we didn’t know that well. The audience was very responsive and keen to explore the varied work on display.

I was so impressed by the openness of the children and their ability to communicate the experience. Many thanks to all who attended and supported us!
