Now, we all know that students at CSIA are very good at talking! However, did you know that this skill can be put to good use? The annual Rotary Youth Speaks competition was held at CSIA on Thursday 6th February, with six teams competing to progress to the area final.
Kayleigh B and Robyn B have both won the Art Student of the month award. Kayleigh is a model Art and Design student who makes good progress every lesson, puts in a lot of effort into her work and thoroughly enjoys her Art and Design lessons. Robyn is another excellent Art and Design student who regularly attends Art Club, puts 100% effort into her learning and artistic progress. Both students regularly help other students with ideas, make valued contributions to lessons and have become creative artists over the last half term.
Miss Jones is delighted to announce that Year 10 students Rosie H and Tamsin C have been appointed as her new Masai House Captains.
This week Hannah C has been awarded first place for her fantastic effort in the House Art Challenge. Hannah, who refers to art as her ‘passion’, created a Masai landscape in acrylics and won Masai House 50 points for the House league as a result!
The House Art Challenge ran across two weeks, giving students the opportunity to enter individually or with a combined tutor group effort. Students were asked to be creative with their choice of materials and skills displayed. When judging, Mrs Jamieson was keeping an extra special eye out for any ingenious uses of recycled products.
