Voice Week

In recognition of World Voice Day, we held Mulberry’s own ‘Voice Week’. The theme was about the importance of finding your voice. We enjoyed a spoken word performance from three famous poets: Zena Edwards, Jasmine Ann Cooray and Katie Bonna. Professor Gary Watt, from Warwick University, kindly created an ‘Introduction to Rhetoric’ film for our school which was played in assembly. To encourage students to use their voices expressively, there was a poetry café in the SEN department. For sixth formers, voice practitioners gave a workshop on communication skills. I really enjoyed voice week and trying to find my voice. I think people have become a lot more confident after using their own and hearing other people’s voices.
