Arts Award Achievement
On Wednesday 12th December, the Arts Award moderator visited Selby High School and successfully passed all 30 entries who participated in the national qualification last year. Students independently completed a large proportion of this work themselves in their own time. The high levels of effort and dedication put in produced outstanding and beautifully creative work.
Within the four sections, students chose which art form they wished to develop, research, watch as live art and review and then finally what they would like to teach to others during their own workshop lesson.
Two Year 10 students undertook the Shakespeare special edition Bronze award, using their participation in The Shakespeare Schools festival. Here they performed in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and got the chance to watch other schools perform Shakespeare live too. The other twenty eight students did their Arts Award in Year 7 during four specialised drop down days and as previously mentioned a lot of their own time too.
Kate Plumb, the Arts Award moderator, stated:
“Selby High School commits wholeheartedly to the ethos of Arts Award - encouraging individual passion for a whole variety of art forms and providing opportunities and support. Well done for all you’ve achieved – young people and advisors.”
