An apt school song for St Luke's Special School, Redbourn. As a linguist I have been put to shame by these students. Performing at their 'Stars of St Luke's Award Ceremony' students with perfect hearing stood alongside their hearing-impaired classmates and demonstrated equality, respect and sheer talent in their signing of their new school song.
Their talent does not stop at their aptitude for sign language. The school is literally draped in the outstanding art work created by students of St Luke's, some of whom have recently sat their Art GCSE. The Awards ceremony also marked the unveiling of another tremendous sculpture which the students collaborated on with artist Philip Melling.
For the first time in this school's history, 3 students have also received their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award. In addition to a sea of presentations for academic effort and achievement a group of students also performed a mixture of contemporary and traditional dance: a thoroughly enjoyable evening and an absolute honour to have been invited.
Congratulations to eTwinning Ambassador John Warwick for being part of such an inspirational school and for the positive impact of his international work.
In September staff and students of St Luke's will attend the Paralympics... but for now they are the stars.
