An art wall dedicated to My Freedom Day was created and launched in the stunning college atrium as part of a collaborative creative project. Students contributed to the striking piece with their thoughts and opinions on the topical subject.
Budding-stars showcased their creative abilities, shining a light on the day with a musical celebration concert. Talented pianists, singers and guitarists took to the stage to perform exceptional renditions in recognition of the movement.
