Stamford College Hosts Christmas Party For Ukrainian Community

66ddcfd1 d1c1 45cf bcf1 896c2da7cc43

Stam­ford Col­lege, part of Inspire Edu­ca­tion Group, in con­junc­tion with the Stam­ford Diver­si­ty Group and Stam­ford Town Coun­cil, host­ed a fes­tive Christ­mas par­ty for over 100 mem­bers of the local Ukrain­ian com­mu­ni­ty, where guests enjoyed fam­i­ly fun, food, games, poet­ry and music.

Stam­ford Col­lege had host­ed a sim­i­lar meal, a Ukrain­ian Wel­come Din­ner, in the sum­mer months, where Scott Coe, Stam­ford Poet Lau­re­ate, read a poem that he had writ­ten titled, Would I Be Brave Enough?’ (see below). Sub­se­quent­ly, Natali­ia Yakovl­e­va, the Stam­ford Ukrain­ian film­mak­er, asked Scott for per­mis­sion to send his poignant words to Ukraine, for the famous com­pos­er, Rus­lan Kvin­ta, for­mer pro­duc­er of Ukraine’s Euro­vi­sion selec­tion, to set to music. British-Ukrain­ian local music teacher, Mike Tymoczko, who heads up the local Ukrain­ian choir vol­un­tar­i­ly, received the com­po­si­tion, extract­ed the back­ing track and record­ed it as a ver­sion with local singer and Stam­ford Col­lege stu­dent, Ghost White. With Rus­lan’s per­mis­sion, the song was pre­miered live to all 100 Ukraini­ans attend­ing the fes­tive fam­i­ly par­ty at the Col­lege. Ghost was delight­ed to be asked to per­form live; I felt amazed to see such a large group of peo­ple inter­act as if they were one big fam­i­ly – the atmos­phere was absolute­ly incred­i­ble! See­ing every­body hav­ing such a good time, despite recent events, inspired me to want to do my very best to per­form and bring the poem to life”.

Guests also enjoyed poetry recitals by Scott Coe himself, as well as from Stamford’s Youth Poet Laureate and Stamford College English Tutor, Daniel Paice. Second Helpings, George's Hub and the Rotary Club of Stamford also collected and donated presents for the Ukrainian children. The Catering & Hospitality students of the College voluntarily served a party buffet, whilst students from the Childcare and Hair & Beauty departments entertained the children, using their expertise to do face painting and run party games. Emma Hemmings, Assistant Principal for Curriculum at Stamford College, commented, “It’s a pleasure to work alongside Stamford Town Council and Stamford Diversity Group to support the local Ukrainian Community. It was a great opportunity for our students to showcase their skills and work with the young people and their families. At Inspire Education Group we feel that we have a civic responsibility and we are always happy to support our local community”.

Yvette Diaz-Munoz, Chair of Stamford Diversity Group showed her appreciation for all those involved in the organisation of the event; “We are hugely grateful to Stamford College staff and students who put so much into the event. We are also thankful for all the kind donations that enabled this event to take place, including Christmas presents from Second Helpings and the Rotary Club, and a generous financial donation from a local councillor to support the work that we are doing with Ukrainian refugees”. Councillor Amanda Wheeler from Stamford Town Council, who worked alongside Yvette in coordinating a team of volunteers working with the Ukrainian community, said, “This is the second event we’ve held at Stamford College and we were overwhelmed by how helpful the staff and students have been. Highlights were the powerful performance by Ghost and the frantic Pass the Parcel game at the end of the evening – a first for the Ukrainian children!”

Would I Be Brave Enough?’ – Scott Coe (2022)

North when dis­cussing the party.

Would I be brave enough?
To pick up a gun
To defend my peo­ple
From being overrun

Would I be brave enough?
To make a stand
To chal­lenge a sol­dier
Who’s invad­ed my land

Would I be brave enough?
To defy my orders
To lay down my gun
And stop the slaughter

Would I be brave enough?
To join a protest
Against a dic­ta­tor
And risk arrest

And would I be brave enough?
To face him down
And put a bul­let
Into his crown

Would I be brave enough?
To wear the shoes
Of all the brave souls
I see on the news.
