‘An Underwater Adventure’ competition (2015)

This year’s ‘An Underwater Adventure’ competition was our 7th year running it thanks for the support of Faber-Castell. The competition was open to all our summer camp participants (over 1,400 students!) and this year, we had to divide the entries into three separate groups: Juniors (5-7 years), Middle (7-8 years) and Seniors (9-12 years).

It was a testament to the dedication, imagination and attention to detail put in by all the students who entered that our judges awarded joint 2nd and 3rd place in all three categories! The judging process, led by Artzone’s Art Director Gillian Blaney Shorte and Senior Teacher Louise Campbell, involved ranking the entries in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, and also Highly Commending pieces which really stood out to the judges.

Well done to all involved!
