The class of 2020 leavers celebration assembly
Video messages from the staff at Holy Cross
Class of 2020, today would have been our students leavers celebration assembly, we would have all gathered together in the hall and looked back and reflected on their journey at Holy Cross. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are not able to do this. The world has been on hold for what seems like forever, our time to come together is also on hold but not forever, for now we have to remain apart but I hope that when our students read through and watch the different presentations in this, they will feel close again to their friends, teachers, support staff and the leaders that make up our wonderful college community. - Kelly, College Lay Chaplain

Amber-Jade Jones entered the contest hosted by Phoebe Bridgers
I first thought I’d submit an entry into Phoebe Bridgers' competition as I love her music, and using stop motion as the medium was ideal as it is one I have always liked but had never had the opportunity to try. The initial goal was just to keep myself entertained with something that I could use as a creative output and experiment with new materials. However, I realised once I shared the completed video it had more of an impact than I expected. I had messages from people saying that it was really emotional for them; I think because of the circumstances that we’re in, the distance and loneliness seems to be bringing people together. I’m glad that it could make a positive difference in anyone’s day and I hope to make that happen again and again with animation in the future.
