Eye Opening Visit for Year 13
In late September, as part of the Service element of Cobham Hall’s Sixth Form curriculum, girls in Year 13 visited the recent ‘Knife Angel’ exhibition at Rochester Cathedral.
The Angel, regarded as the National Monument against Violence and Aggression, is made out of 100,000 surrendered or seized knives from the UK. The accompanying exhibition explores real-life case studies and examines the facts surrounding knives.
“It was a heart-breaking experience,” explained Deputy Guardian Teloni. “I didn’t expect to see so many knives that are used for butchering, and swords too. It was gruesome. Besides that, the face of the angel also made a great impression on me. It was one of anguish and despair and accurately reflects the pain that the victims experienced.”
