The Form of 2007 plaque is now completed. The detail photograph above shows a sample of the painted finish on the plaque – the earth surrounded by recycling symbol arrows representing the beginning of the Environmental Stewardship program at St. Paul’s School.
The completed framed plaque will be presented on Anniversary Weekend at the beginning of June – at which time photographs of the finished plaque will be published online. Thank you to the representatives from the Form of 2007 for their help with this project – make sure to stop by the Upper to see your plaque if you are visiting that weekend!
The design stage is complete for the 1992 form plaque. I worked with representatives from the Form of 1992 to come up with a list of events, and the following were chosen by them to represent their 6th Form experiences at SPS:
- Left: A large gavel represents a successful year for the SPS Debate team
- Right: Crossed oars represent an eventful Crew season for both girls and boys teams
- Center Top: A closed book with the initials C. H. C. representing the end of Charles Halsey Clark’s tenure as Rector
- Center Bottom: A sickle and hammer symbol broken in many pieces, with the letters USSR, representing the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
I will be posting photos of the carving process here on the Form Plaque Project blog and on the Form Plaque Project Facebook page when I begin working on the carving process of the 1992 plaque.
