Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Kenny Smith

Cathkin High School re­cently be­came an art gallery for a day.

Last Thurs­day, May 14, the Cam­bus­lang school played host to an S2 art and de­sign ex­hi­bi­tion, which also fea­tured work from Cathkin Com­mu­nity Nurs­ery and Ruther­glen High School.

It proved to be hugely popular with all who at­tended, and de­lighted both the young­sters, staff and the vis­i­tors who saw their work.

Head teacher Anne Marie McNair said: “Cathkin High School along­side Ruther­glen High School and Cathkin Com­mu­nity Nurs­ery pre­sented an art and de­sign ex­hi­bi­tion on Thurs­day evening.

“S2 pupils and pre-school nurs­ery chil­dren shared the street area in Cathkin, where over 200 pieces of work were ex­hib­ited.

“S4 Hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents pro­vided a range of cakes and re­fresh­ments which were en­joyed by all.

“The young artists chose their most suc­cess­ful work from their years port­fo­lio.

“Par­ents, car­ers, pupils, teach­ers and dig­ni­taries at­tended the event which was a great suc­cess, vis­i­tors com­mented on the high stan­dard and va­ri­ety of works on show.

“Pupils en­joyed the op­por­tu­nity to show­case their work within an ex­hi­bi­tion space.

“The art and de­sign teach­ers were thrilled with the event’s suc­cess and hope to in­clude S1 work next year.”

One of those who at­tended was Cam­bus­lang West Labour coun­cil­lor Richard Tul­lett, who saw his daugh­ter Emily’s art on show.

He said: “Ev­ery­one’s art­work was of such a high stan­dard and it was great to see the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of all the pupils con­cerned.

“I am con­stantly en­cour­aged by the cre­ativ­ity of our pupils lo­cally and this ex­hi­bi­tion is fur­ther ev­i­dence of that.”
