THORNHILL PUPILS WIN NASUWT ARTS AND MINDS AWARD

Thornhill pupils are celebrating after their artwork was crowned a winner in the 2014 Arts & Minds competition organised by the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union in the UK.

Arts & Minds is an annual, UK-wide competition aimed at promoting race equality and diversity in schools. Children and young people from primary, secondary and special schools are judged in two categories: art and creative writing.

Thornhill’s  winning entry, entitled ‘As others see us’ explores perceptions of life for young people in Bangladesh and was inspired by our Connecting Classrooms project which links Thornhill with a partner school in Chittagong, 

Our entry was selected from hundreds of entries from across the UK as a winner in the secondary schools group artwork category and involved twenty seven pupils working together with Mrs Cross, Mr Black, Mr Ali and Mrs Etherington to complete the picture.

Three pupils represented the class and travelled to London with their parents and Mrs Etherington to receive their award at a national awards ceremony held in the St James’ Park Hotel.
