Year 7 students have been busy working on an innovative and exciting project this term. The project, entitled ‘The seven wonders of Harwich’ or ‘Les sept merveilles d’Harwich’ aims to develop students’ knowledge and interest in their local community, as well as strengthening the school links with the surrounding businesses.
Seven classes of year seven students have each chosen a ‘wonder’ of Harwich and Dovercourt, researched it and produced some fantastic posters to display. The uniqueness of this project lies in the fact that the posters are aimed at the local community, with an international twist, appealing to French speaking countries too. Some of the ‘wonders’ of Harwich include: The Beach, The Electric Palace, The Mayflower Project and The Lighthouse to cite a few.
The students final work will be displayed at an exhibition at Harwich and Dovercourt High School on Monday 17 July 4pm-5pm, where a prize will be awarded to the most innovative and creative work.
