Term 4 is now well un­der way. This is the busi­ness end of the year where hard work over the last three terms cul­mi­nates in NCEA ex­ams and fi­nal as­sess­ments for our stu­dents.

Our Art stu­dents sub­mit a port­fo­lio of their art work which they have worked on for the year. Art stu­dents are very busy fi­nal­is­ing their art work and pre­sent­ing it for mark­ing. Mrs Gil­roy, our Head of Art, says stu­dents choose a theme and work on this topic us­ing a va­ri­ety of me­dia.

“Their ideas are gen­er­ated from artists mod­els and their own cre­ativ­ity. Their fo­lio rep­re­sents hours and hours of hard work from our stu­dents.”

Ethan Roent­gen and Gayle Woot­ton are Year 11 art stu­dents. They have been work­ing hard to put the fi­nal touches to their art work be­fore it is sent away for mark­ing.

“My art­work is a prod­uct of lots of hard work and hours of paint­ing,” Ethan says.

“My port­fo­lio has a theme of es­pi­onage and re­con­nais­sance.

“I have cho­sen these themes be­cause I am in­ter­ested in the sig­nif­i­cance they have played in his­tory,” he says.

“I de­cided early on what my theme was,” Gayle says. “I used on­line pic­tures to help me be cre­ative in my paint­ings which de­vel­oped through­out the year.”

“We have had the most fab­u­lous year and the work our stu­dents have done is sim­ply stun­ning — I am so proud of them,” Miss Parkin, our Art teacher says.

Ethan and Gayle are just two of our tal­ented art stu­dents. The art work be­ing pro­duced is quite amaz­ing and widely cel­e­brated. We look for­ward to see­ing what grades they have achieved.
