Well done to some of our Primary 4 and 5 children who submitted artwork to their teacher during the school closure. Everyone’s artwork is being included in this online event.
We received a lovely congratulations video for the team at the Exhibition.
This year’s theme for P4-7 was ‘Fruit and Vegetables’. Have a look at our gallery below to see our entries.
Of course there are always a few stand out pieces of artwork, and so two of our young artists have been selected to receive a highly commended award. Well done to Mia and Hannah who received this award!!
