Arts Week

Beach Creative recently offered Herne Bay Junior School a sponsored exhibition week with the suggested title of Climate Change. In response, this week (23rd September – 27th September), children at HBJS will take part in our annual Arts Week – Climate Change. A range of experiences will be enjoyed, with the topical theme of climate change. From this we hope your child will gain a sense of knowledge and understanding, alongside an opportunity to participate in an eclectic mix of arts activities that will enable them to make informed choices in this current and topical subject.
The exhibition itself will take place early October. More of that to come!
