Pupils display wishes for the future with 'Rainbow of Hope'

Our Chaplain Revd. Jo Davis introduced a new project entitled ‘Rainbow of Hope’ for the last week of term.

Pupils and staff were invited to the chapel to add their hopes for the future on coloured tags, to record their memories and note down things they have missed or things they’re particularly looking forward to. The decorative tags were then tied with coloured ribbons to the trellis in St. Antony’s Chapel to create Bryanston’s ‘Rainbow of Hope’, in order to mark the first anniversary of the ‘stay at home’ order.

The Chaplain introduced the project in assembly last week, speaking about the importance of rainbows in the past – in the Bible as symbols of hope – and the significance they took on during the pandemic, appearing in numerous windows.

Revd. Jo Davis commented: “It has been lovely to see the pupils reflecting on the past year and watch the tags being added over the week. Our poignant ‘Rainbow of Hope’ will be on display next term for all to see.”

Also displayed in the chapel were postcards sent in by staff during the first lockdown period. All members of staff were sent a blank postcard last year and encouraged to draw, sketch, paint or write on it with a message of hope.
