Public Vote Now Open!

Three art works by Year 9 students have been shortlisted for display a city-wide art exhibition in the summer at the Walker Art Gallery.

A pencil self-portrait by Ellis Forshaw, a coloured pencil drawing of the Joker by Ryan McNee and a CAD music poster by Luke Swaine were recently selected by Dot-Art judges to go forward for an X-Factor style public vote.

The most popular piece from each participating school will be announced at a celebration event with the Lord Mayor in May and shown at a special exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery in June.

See all of the submissions from our school here via our Flickr page, don't forget to visit the Dot-Art website to vote for your favourite today!

Bible Quote

“Praise the Lord because he is good.  His faithful love will last forever.”
Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?

MRS. JOHNSTONE: What? What?

MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."
