On Tuesday 15th of November Charleston Academy held its annual S1 Art Exhibition in the school’s assembly hall, where senior students also exhibited a small collection of their Photography work. As well as giving the exhibited artwork well-deserved recognition there was also a variety of stalls run by pupils and other members of our community.

The artwork was judged on the Monday morning before the event by Rector Mr O’Neill, Art Portfolio Students Beth Fraser (6T) & Jodie Keiro-Kirk (6L) and friend of the school Highland Hubs Art Manager, Stacey Toner.

Cara Gourlay (1S1) was awarded as the overall winner; Arran Kennedy (1S2) was presented best composition. Best use of colour was given to Neive Rodden (1K), best use of pattern was awarded to Paul Stuart (1S1) and Joshua Williamson (1K) was awarded with the most creative.

A special thank you to Mrs Kate Morris and other members of the Parent Council for supporting this event every year with such enthusiasm. A total of £220 was raised for Parent Council funds. Further special thanks goes to all the local businesses for their generous donation of prizes: Tesco Inshes, Harry Gow, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, ScotMid, Landmark, SoCoCo, and Rajah Indian Restaurant.

This event continues to inspire me; the truly outstanding work produced this year’s S1 cohort was a joy for the Art Teachers to showcase. We are extremely proud of our S1 and senior students who continue to achieve in Art daily.

Overall Winner, Kern Robertson (1S1) wrote:

“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.
