It is truly inspiring to witness the creative energy and passion our Year 8 pupils have poured into their designs for the St Giles Hospice 40th-anniversary art competition in collaboration with ‘Wild in Art. The artistic expressions not only showcase the immense talent within our school but also reflect the thoughtful consideration given to the profound meaning behind each piece.
The collaboration between the Art Department, the pupils, and the charity has been a fulfilling journey, emphasising the importance of art in promoting social causes. Mrs. H Van Daalen, Head of Art, commends the pupils for their fantastic outcomes by saying: “Our Year 8 pupils have truly embraced this opportunity, producing remarkable designs that delve into meaningful concepts. This project not only showcases their artistic skills but also sparks conversations about the deeper meanings behind their creations. No matter whether any pupils’ designs are chosen for this competition, I am proud of each and every one who participated for this fantastic cause.”
The St Giles Hospice 40th anniversary art competition provides a platform for our pupils to contribute to a meaningful cause while also honing their artistic skills. We are proud to support this initiative and look forward to the positive impact these art pieces will have on raising awareness and funds for the hospice.
As we celebrate this milestone with ‘wild in art,’ we encourage everyone to appreciate the artistic endeavours of our Year 8 pupils and recognise the power of art in fostering connections and promoting social responsibility. Together, we can make a difference through creativity and compassion.
