Educate against hate Artist in residence - working with the children
Ethical education through art - See the slideshow...

The Quadrangle or Language of Water is a project of ethical education though art by Lilia Pegado.

Lilia Pegado is a painter who lives and works in London. Her art covers a wide variety of themes ranging from the preservation of Nature and the harmony of society, to solidarity and love.

By teaching the principles of The Quadrangle, the children are encouraged to play with images and words, and to distinguish their meaning and associations. This practice has helped not only their sense of self-discovery but also their ability to focus, communicate, function as a team, become socially adept, develop self-confidence and self-esteem and importantly, have fun.

The practice of the Quadrangle, is a meditative process which, like meditation, produces a concrete result on the brain. Unlike meditation, however, it also produces results on paper as a pictorial image of the experience itself.

Educate against hate Show solidarity with Grenfell and Go!
Bring a donation to school and wear green on Friday 23rd June...
arrowsee more

...The tragedy of the Grenfell Tower Fire in Kensington and Chelsea has been felt deeply in St John’s Angell Town School.

Many of us live in high-rise blocks ourselves, or have loved ones living in similar blocks, and it is hard to bear the thought of a similar event happening again.

Many schools are showing solidarity with the families affected by the fire by wearing green and contributing a donation to help the families at a time when they have lost almost everything.

On Friday 23rd June we are asking children to come to school wearing something green to show support for the residents of Grenfell Towers and bring a small donation for our school collection (suggestion 50p-£1).

Many thanks for your support,

Level 3 - Heatwave Action. Coping with the hot weather.
arrowsee more

...The Met Office has issued a level 3 heatwave alert for London until Wednesday 21st June! Click on any of the three images here to view more information on coping with the heat.

The Heatwave Action Plan for England sets out what should happen before and during periods of severe heat. It spells out what preparations both individuals and organisations can make to reduce health risks and includes specific measures to protect at-risk groups.

The main risks posed by a heatwave are:

  • Dehydration (not having enough water)
  • Overheating, which can make symptoms worse for people who already have problems with their heart or breathing
  • Heat exhaustion and heatstroke

Tips on how to keep cool:

  • Have plenty of cold drinks, and avoid hot drinks
  • Eat cold foods, particularly salads and fruit with a high water content
  • Take a cool shower, bath or body wash
  • Sprinkle water over the skin or clothing, or keep a damp cloth on the back of your neck
  • Keep out of the sun between 11am and 3pm
  • If you have to go out in the heat, walk in the shade, apply sunscreen and wear a hat and light scarf
  • Avoid extreme physical exertion
  • Wear light, loose-fitting cotton clothes.
