Glow Festival is an annual celebration of making and creating at St Aidan's
By Alexandra Spaling, Imogen Stocks & Lucy Day
Held in The Link, Glow is an exciting opportunity for students to showcase their work and become inspired by achievements in Music, Engineering, Visual Arts and Design Technology. This year, Glow expanded to include the junior school, exhibiting works from Kindy through to Year 12.
Wandering through the show, visitors were totally immersed in the remarkable creativity of the students. Junior school music performances brought primary works to life, tastebuds were transported by student-cooked canapes and the Senior Art exhibition left all in awe.
The evening transformed our school into a stimulating hub of creativity, encouraging girls to celebrate one another's achievements in a space filled with inspiration. Encouraging the Arts within school is crucial in maintaining a well-rounded learning environment. Creative subjects arm students with the means to express themselves and help develop analytical thinking and problem-solving skills.
The exhibition revealed the diversity in artistic approaches and student experiences by exploring how various age groups are capable of investigating both personal and global issues within their work. The night emphasized the exceptional skill, ingenuity and conceptual abilities within St Aidan’s and encouraged girls across all year levels to come together: united by their common passion for creating.
Glow festival is a chance to feel enlightened by the unrestricted creativity of the young mind and an experience not to miss!
