Students in Years 5–10 and Lower Sixth spent a day of their 'remote St Helen's' timetable, dedicated to creating submissions for a new collection to be housed in the School Archives.
Students were given the opportunity to create pieces of work to reflect their feelings on the current Covid-19 pandemic and their experiences of Remote St Helen’s. Some students chose to write letters to a future student, others opted to document their new study areas during Remote St Helen’s. There were some creative videos submitted as well as music compositions, excellent pieces of artwork and poetry writing.
Contribute to our Covid-19 Collection Archive Project
Following the success of our Archive Day in May, where we were delighted to receive over 700 contributions from students, our Archivist, Georgina Blackmore would now like to extend this project to include submissions from Old Girls and former staff.
For details of how to submit a piece for this new collection please have a look at the suggestions and guidance below.

Large physical items (such as pieces of art) should be kept safely at home until school reopens.
Alumnae and former staff are encouraged to submit work with their name included, however this is not compulsory. If wishing to be anonymous, please include whether you are an Old Girl or former staff, and ideally the years you were at St Helen’s.
Please email Georgie if you would like any clarification on this project firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your help with documenting this moment in the school's history, we look forward to receiving your submissions.
