Yu Meng wins Page Turner art competition

Click here to see a larger image and read Yu Meng's commentaryYear nine student, Yu Meng Li has taken first place in the the 'Years 7-9 Secondary' category of the Page Turner virtual art book competition.

Organised by the brand new Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate and supported by the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury (UCA) , young people from schools, colleges and universities were asked to create a piece of artwork or write a short piece with the theme of "Nothing in the World but Youth".

Yu Meng's entry; "Listen To Your Heart" (right) was one of over 400 received by the judges who narrowed the field down to a shortlist of 150.

An exhibition and presentation evening was held at UCA on 28 April. Prizes were awarded to each of the category winners and runners up. The shortlisted art will be on display in the Learning Studio at the Turner Contemporary on Saturday 14 May 2011.

"Nothing in the World but Youth" will form the theme of a major exhibition at the Turner Contemporary from September 2011 to January 2012.  

Help needed for the school library

BooksThe school library has for many years benefited from the help of Miss Janet Harding who has given regular time on a voluntary basis to support Ms Jones in the running of the library. Being a qualified librarian she has been a tremendous asset to the school and she will be sadly missed now that she has had to retire through ill health.  We wish her well and a speedy recovery.

The school would be really grateful if there is anyone who has some expertise of library work and would be willing to commit some time to helping us run this important part of the school.  If you are interested please either contact Miss Jones or Mr Pullen via the school office.
