Langley Academy students take part in migration exhibition

A trip to London was enjoyed by students from The Langley Academy on Thursday.

They were visiting the Adopting Britain: 70 Years of Migration exhibition at London’s Southbank Centre.

The exhibition features an eclectic display of items and personal stories of migrants and refugees, as it celebrates the contribution of migrant groups to Britain’s artistic landscape.

Some of the 16 visiting students from the school, in Langley Road, had donated items to the Keepsakes exhibit.

The exhibition is part of the Migration Museum Project which aims to establish a new national migration museum for the UK.

Pupil Reece Gale, 16, who had donated a Tibetan amulet box, said: “I felt honoured and proud of myself for being part of this, as a whole I think the exhibition is really good, very informative of what people have gone through and what people have done to get here."
