Amber may have left us but she is still on the look-out for interesting ways for us to fulfill our ambition to make a successful transition from one school to another. She sent me this link to a project by the artist Graeme Miller called Linked. She thought we might be able to do something similar. here's what it says on the site:

Stretching from Hackney Marshes to Redbridge, the M11 Link Road was completed in 1999 after the demolition of 400 homes amid dramatic and passionate protests. Now artist Graeme Miller has filled the empty spaces these buildings once occupied with a treasure trail of sound celebrating a century of everyday moments in East End life.

Concealed along a three-mile route, 20 transmitters continually broadcast hidden voices, recorded testimonies and rekindled memories of those who once lived and worked where the motorway now runs. From the intensely political to the quietly everyday, LINKED allows moments of the past to haunt the present.

It sounds brilliant. Maybe we could ask our artist in residence Mike Shaw to help us work out how to do something like it? What do you think?
