Form of 2018 Plaque

The upper left corner of the plaque design features a closed book, marking the end of the Rectorship of Michael G. Hirschfeld ’85. To the right of the book is a dorm building with a lock and key, representing the addition of locks on dormitory room doors. The bottom left of the plaque shows the number 6 springing on a trampoline, to commemorate the 6th Form class trip to a trampoline park. The bottom center features the hashtag #metoo, which began to be used on Twitter in October of 2017 and spread into an international movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault. The lower right corner of the plaque shows the New Chapel tower with a clock set at 8:30, to note the later start time for morning chapel.

2018 Plaque Progress: Design Completed

The design stage is complete for the 2018 form plaque. I worked with the student council officers from the Form of 2018 to come up with a list of events, and the following were chosen by them to represent their 6th Form experiences at SPS:

  • Upper left corner: The book from the school shield is shown closed and inscribed with the initials MGH to represent the end of Michael Hirschfeld’s rectorship
  • Upper center and right corner: Features a dorm with a lock and key, representing the addition of locks to the dorm rooms during the school year
  • Lower left: Shows the number 6 springing up from a trampoline to represent the 6th Form class trip to Skyzone that took place at the beginning of the year
  • Lower center: Features a banner with the Me Too hashtag to represent the international viral movement that began in the fall, addressing the widespread prevalence of sexual harassment and assault
  • Lower right: Shows the New Chapel tower with a clock set to 8:30 to represent the later start time for morning chapel

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 2018 plaque.
