The Campus recently received a glowing endorsement from Monica Ferguson, Chief Executive and Creative Director at The Stables, about a small group of Stantonbury students who participated in the Feast of Fire.
“I just wanted to say a personal thank you to Stantonbury Campus on behalf of everyone involved in Feast of Fire.
We were delighted that you were able to release the young people so they could be involved in making fire drawings during the production week for Milton Keynes’ birthday celebration.
We were very impressed by Iris, Sophie and Keanu. They committed wholeheartedly and we thoroughly enjoyed having them as part of the team.
The project was designed with the aim of building confidence and inspiring their choices in the future and we are delighted that this ambition was realised. The fire drawings they produced were wonderful, they showed they had steely spirits working outside and putting up with what Storm Brian threw at them.
They all worked with a 100% professional attitude throughout the 2 days they spent with us and when they lit the Fire Drawings it was a truly moving and proud moment for them and for all of us who were involved in the project.
Each of the young people eill receive a certificate and a link to some photos they can use in their portfolios.
We very much hope there will be further opportunities to develop our connection with Stantonbury Campus in the future.”
