Truro High pupils scoop top awards at countywide art and design exhibition
Competing against students from over 20 schools and colleges from across the county, Truro High’s pupils scooped two awards and an honorary commendation.
Over 50 students from Year 11 and 13 showcased a range of high profile creative work at the prestigious event, including from Design Technology projects, Media Studies, Literature, Fine Art, Music, Photography and Business Enterprise.
Year 11 Amani Hart received the ‘Fine Art’ award for her portraits of artist Franco Clun and her late father Paul. Year 13 Kitty Rowland received a commendation in the ‘Textiles’ category for her costume designs including a piece based on Dickens’ Miss Havisham. Kitty has been offered a place at the prestigious London College of Fashion for September.
Truro High’s Year 10 Young Enterprise Team Silvah Upcycle have added to their growing number of awards this year. Earlier this year the team won both ‘Corporate Sustainability’ award and runner-up in ‘Best Presentation’ at the Young Enterprise Innovation Awards. Their success continued at CreatEd as they scooped the ‘Business and Young Enterprise’ award for their ethically sourced and eco-friendly range of handmade products made from bottle corks and jam jars.
The CreatEd Exhibition is the only show in the UK which exhibits the creative talents of students from schools and colleges together. Judges are invited in from leading industries to award prizes in all categories.
Head of Art and Design, Mrs Judith Tutin said: “Creativity is at the heart of everything we do at Truro High from Art and Textiles to Business and Science. The work on show at CreatEd really shows this, and I am thrilled that the girls’ talent and hard work has been celebrated this evening.”
