Yesterday, on the same day as all the ruckus about School of the Arts (SOTA) students not pursuing the arts after graduation, a current SOTA student put up an art installation in memory of the teachers who have left the school.
It consisted of folded paper airplanes stuck in the crevices between the concrete slabs on level 5. Written on each folded paper airplane was the name of a teacher who had left the school. The installation was located just outside the general office, near where the Vice-Principals’ offices are.
The art installation lasted about a day. It was removed by the school today.
As a former SOTA teacher, I would like to say thank you to the student who created that heartwarming, short-lived piece.
