One of the tasks that I had last week was to make IDs for all the students. There’s really not a big need for them since the student body is so small, but the students like having them.
Occasionally they can be used for discounts on traveling back to their home villages, and may help identify them should they run into some trouble during a Town Day, etc.
This was a fun project, something different, and a way to do something creative. The template that was used in the past is pretty plain, so I asked if I could spice it up with a little color. A bolder, brighter look. The tools at hand are limited to a 2003 version of MS Publisher, but I think they turned out pretty nice.
I had a lot of fun taking the photos of the students. They don’t often have their picture taken, so several of them wanted to look their best, trying out a couple of shirts for the best look.
It’s nice to be able to give them something that they can take a little pride in. They deserve something a little nice, I think, after all the work they’ve been putting into their studies.
