On the Monday 12th March, Year 10 Art students visited the Old Quarter to collect visual research for their iGCSE coursework. The preparatory work for the Art iGCSE forms 50% of the students' final GCSE grade, so this trip was very important for providing inspiration for the beginning of their coursework.

The day started at St. Joseph's Cathedral and from there we made our way to the train tracks on Trần Phú to take photographs and create sketches. After lunch, we walked into Old Quarter and explored Đồng Xuân Market. Unfortunately the heavy rain cut our trip short by an hour. However, by this point students had already collected a wide range of interesting photographs to use and were clearly very tired after almost 10km of walking. The students clearly enjoyed looking at the unique and visually stimulating city that we live in with fresh eyes. We were hugely impressed with their hard work, stamina and engagement with the photography task, particularly as many of these students were still recovering from their Bronze International Award practise.

Following the trip, the students were asked to compile their research and present it on a double page in their sketchbook. These photos will form the basis of their further investigations, development work and final outcome as they progress with their coursework.
