    THEMES

    GLEED GIRLS' TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Spalding, Lincolnshire
    "One Man's Rubbish is Another Man's Gold"

      Some people see rubbish as waste or recycling but other people see the same objects as being valuable to them, which can be used in their daily routine and therefore demonstrating how One Man's Rubbish could be Another Man's Gold. For instance, our graffiti wall is art to some people but is seen as a human disgrace by other people.

    JOHN SPENDLUFFE TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Alford, Lincolnshire
    "The Fear of The Unknown"

      The fear of the unknown. Are they sent to challenge our apprehensions and fears? A girl's sleep is disturbed. She sees painted faces: she feels them mocking, laughing, poking, pulling. Fighting against the faces, they are too strong. She is pulled into a world where people are watching, waiting to be entertained. This is her worst nightmare ... or is it?

    KING EDWARD VI HUMANITIES COLLEGE, Spilsby, Lincolnshire
    "Anti-social behaviour ?"

      In our grey, bleak times we look in tear-stained despair at the daily increase of prejudice-driven violent crime. It is like we are living in a machine-driven war zone, where the common currency is death. A social sickness is quickly spreading like the plague through our communities - but is it really all that new?

    ST. BEDE'S GRAMMAR SCHOOL, Boston, Leicestershire
    "Perfection is Deception"

      In a child's dream, a toy shop is brought magically to life. It sounds like a perfect world: is it? we soon discover not everything is as it seems in the toy shop. Behind the perfect image of a doll lies a mean, ruthless heart. Image is not everything: those flawed on the outside are on the inside often faultless!

    THE SKEGNESS GRAMMAR SCHOOL, Skegness, Lincolnshire
    "The Real Toy Box"

      Have you ever thought about how children's toys reflect the evils of the adult world? Should Barbie portray as much sexual prowess? Would your son enjoy playing with his toy gun if he knew the reality of war? How much do the rules of play and our early learning experiences affect the decisions we make in the future ?
