“For the S1 Art Exhibition my class were asked to paint a view from a window in their house and then decide what animal to include in the artwork. I decided to draw a view from my bedroom window and I chose to add a peacock.

I really enjoyed the Art Exhibition and also looking at all the other artworks and handmade items for sale at the stalls. I thought the evening was really fun and everyone that attended seemed to have fun!”

Our exhibition is organised by our Parent Council and Art Department. This year we were delighted to welcome special guests, Provost Alex Graham, Councillor Graham Ross, and Councillor Allan Duffy who gave out the prizes.

The overall winning piece by Kern Robertson now takes pride of place in Mr O’Neill’s office and will be the front cover of the Pupil Planner next session. Kern’s piece will also be on display at Vue Cinema in the run up to the Christmas break. Other pieces will soon be on display at Highland Council Headquarters in Glenurquhart Road.

Vue also donated all the prizes for the winners of each category. Pizza Hut donated a voucher for a family meal for the overall winner.

Prizes for our raffle were kindly donated by TESCO, Morrisons, ASDA, ScotMid (Glenurquhart Road), Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Harry Gow and Ego Hair and Beauty.

Thank you to Mrs Julie Riddle on the Parent Council and her team for such a brilliant evening.

Ms Marj MacLeod Principal Teacher of Art & Mr Derek Sim, Art Department
