The Art Department would like to thank Eddy Rhead, an editor for ‘The Modernist’ magazine. The talk covered an insight into publications and design practices.
Dylan Holly’s short film ‘Wanda Sits at a Computer’ has been 'highly commended' at the annual EDUQAS Moving Image Awards. Dylan was presented with a certificate at an awards ceremony at the BFI on Monday 13th January 2020.
The college has also been recognised as a centre achieving excellence in Film Studies.
Dylan also had the pleasure of meeting Anna Smith, film critic, broadcaster, and chair of the UK Critics’ Circle Film Section, as well as Kate Leys, feature film script editor. Kate also works on documentaries and TV productions.
Congratulations to all our students who recently completed a ten-week Royal Institute of Philosophy course.
The students tackled philosophical topics concerning the nature of knowledge, ethics, the mind, free will and aesthetics, with the aim of developing their capacity to think critically. As well as receiving a certificate, each was presented with a philosophy text to encourage their interest. Many thanks to Glenn Skelhorn and the Royal Institute for providing this opportunity.
Students and staff across the college have been getting into the festive spirit and wearing Christmas Jumpers today to raise money for the charity ‘Save the Children’ who support children across the world to learn, grow and become who they want to be.
A huge thanks to all who were involved and for your generous donations.
Last week, fifteen Holy Cross students had the opportunity to visit St. John’s College, Cambridge to find out more about attending a prestigious university. They enjoyed a fascinating Psychology lecture, learnt how to construct a strong application to The University of Cambridge and had a tour of the College led by current students. It was extremely valuable to appreciate that students come from all backgrounds and that there are many bursary schemes that can help make study more affordable.
Next term, on the 30th January, our students will host representatives from Oxford and Cambridge Universities for a workshop for all those interested in applying next September.
