Meet the Pupil Arts Council
Each of our Council members have chosen the Creative Art that they are most passionate about to champion at our school. They will be working in committees to think about their chosen area – how to celebrate the great work we do, and how to make it even better.
Annabelle - I think there should be more dance in PE lessons and more dance equipment. As dance champion I am going to talk to the PE lead about that.
Teiya-May - As dance champion I’m going to help make more opportunities for dance at Drake. I think we need more afterschool clubs in different types of dance, such as jazz and break dancing.
Abbie - As dance champion I am going to see if we can get different types of dance at school.
Scarlett - As drama champion I am going to help make sure we do more interesting things with drama and put on more plays.
Joel - I think we should have an afterschool drama club. As drama champion I would help with the club and teach others how to do drama.
Spencer - I think we definitely need more plays, a drama club and more drama in lessons. As drama champion I’m going to help make that happen.
Lili - As music champion I am going to help us get more afterschool clubs for music and different instruments for us to have lessons in.
Dhanya - I think there should be more chances for us to learn instruments for free.
Izzy – I am going to be a champion for singing. I’m going to see if we can start lunchtime clubs for singing.
Our Champions for Visual Arts
Lena - As art champion I want to teach other children how to do different techniques in art. I could help with a lunchtime club to help other children do Art. We should also do art with natural materials which will good for the environment.
Jensen - As an art champion I’m going to help find places to display more art in our school. I’m also going to help people make their art even neater.
Noah - I think we should do different kinds of art at school. As Art champion, I’m going to help my friends do more art.
Olivia - I’d like there to be afterschool art clubs. I think we should also put more art up. There are loads of white walls, we should hang different types of art on them by Drake artists and by famous artists.
Anureet - I think there should be more 3d modelling in lessons and more clubs for art.
Our Champion for Poetry
Our Champions for Craft
Liyana - As craft champion I am going to encourage the school to collect more junk to recycle into art and crafts. We should have chances to try out lots of different crafts.
Victoria - As craft champion I want to encourage more children to ‘say something’ by being creative. We should have more chances to craft things and try out using new materials.
Our Champion for Design
Jacob - As design champion, I think there should be more opportunities at school for designing products and making things form cardboard and any materials.
Our Champion for Photography
Lyla - I think that everyone should have photography lessons at Drake with proper photography equipment. I would also like us to have a photography club.
