In contemplating Leontia Flynn’s poem ‘The Furthest Distances I’ve Travelled’, our sixth formers considered how we collect souvenirs as we travel through life, and explore Flynn’s assertion that:
‘the furthest distances I’ve travelled
have been those between people. And what survives
of holidaying briefly in their lives.’
Here you can see Kate and Freya’s wonderfully visual work.
