The BREXIT STONE SEEKS A PERMANENT HOME
On the morning of 24th June 2016 a poem called BREXIT was born out of a raw emotional response to the EU referendum result. The poem does not take any side but hints at something disturbing.
Subsequently, ‘Carving through Borders’, a stone-carving collective from Shropshire and mid-Wales, chiselled these prophetic words into a slab of Cambrian Sandstone by way of articulating protest. The stone stands nearly six foot high and, coming in at nearly a quarter ton, is a weighty epitaph to UK stability and prospects for our continued peaceful existence.
Now this Stone needs a home where it can be seen freely by as many people as possible so that it can continue to give voice to the ongoing debate. It is there to give the message that we are better together than apart.
On Saturday 12th October, 12-3pm, The Brexit Stone will be officially launched at Carving Through Borders, Upper House, Knucklas, Knighton, Powys, LD7 1PN. Drinks, nibbles, throat pastilles available. Contact us via www.carvingthroughborders.eu for further information.
A warm welcome to all,
School team and community still recovering from the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The MAP was facilitated by Colin and Derek – the story was told, the future planned. Amazing levels of resilience, energy and enthusiasm to get it right. Such work always strengthens inclusive education for all. MAP is a process that features large in our inclusive education training and broader training on inclusion.
PATH facilitated by Colin and Derek of Inclusive Solutions to launch new academic year. Whole staff present and children’s views incorporated. The PATH process is one which we feature in our inclusive education training as well as on nearly all our inclusive education courses as it is so person centred. Seely school is a flagship fro UK inclusive education – an inspiration to all!
Year 6 Peer Mediators all completed their training today with flying colours! 6 sessions – now they are off to do the real thing! This was rich peer support training and we have now created a powerful peer support training programme well worthy of sharing with others! The benefits to inclusive education and even to autism inclusion in mainstream schools cannot be underestimated.
Colin Newton describes his positive experience this week of setting up a Circle around a young man with Downs in year 11 of a mainstream school.
