Spratton Hall win at the David Shepherd Global Art Competition for the third year in a row
All the pupils at Spratton Hall came together, from Reception right through to Year 8, and created the most amazing piece of artwork for The David Shepherd Foundation Global Art Competition. This year the brief was ‘Our Precious Planet’. The pupils came up with the idea of giant jewellery boxes in the shape of animals. This idea was used to mimic the fact that we keep our precious items in jewellery boxes. Each drawer within each animal was then filled either with small ceramic creatures that the pupils made in their art classes or poems that they had written on the theme. Our Year 8s researched animal habitats to find out why and how we need to keep these animals precious.
We were shortlisted out of 100’s of entries from all around the world and at the end of March a number of pupils and staff took the animals down for the presentation and judging. The final was fittingly held in the Natural History Museum. Copious amounts of bubble wrap were used to ensure a safe journey for the giraffe, elephant and turtle, and the journey was successfully made.
Spratton Hall are extremely proud to announce that for the third year running we have been placed in the top three for our wonderful entry and for the second year running we have been awarded the David Shepherd's Personal Choice Award - this year for the elephant.Published: March 24 2017
