Creating Art from Rubbish

On Monday 24thJune the Oaks International School community celebrated the opening of their annual art exhibition.  This year’s theme was ‘Waste Not Want Not”.

The exhibition was a whole school effort. Every child, from the Nursery to Year 6, was involved. The exhibition showcased the children’s work from throughout the whole school year. There were sunflowers drawn and painted many different ways, beautiful drawings of cacti, tin foil sculptures, an elephant parade and everything in between! It even encompassed the school garden, where children had made plant holders from recycling household items.  One of the highlights was a giant mural made from bottle tops that the children had been collecting since September.  The underlying message of the exhibition was clear – look after our planet, reduce reuse recycle!

Mrs Gibbard, Headteacher, praised the children for their hard work and said “It is so rewarding to see the culmination of everyone’s work all together in one display.  This theme has really captured the imagination of everyone, as the environmental impact of plastics is in the forefront of the media.  It has helped the children learn more about the world in which they live and how we can help make a difference.”
