There were significant numbers in attendance and a lot of positive feedback/comments were received.
This is a BIG undertaking with so many staff involved who help shape this event, from printing invites, setting up the art rooms, cleaning, hanging art work, setting up displays, setting up the music/audio, setting up the stage, catering, photography, selling the art work, assisting the students with the wearable art, and the clean up, pack up and lock up at the end of the night.
Acknowledgement for the planning of this event goes to the Arts Department, Home Economics Department and to Sherree Tomlinson, our Gifted and Talented Coordinator.
