Art and Humanities Competition WW1

Art and Humanities have worked together this term on a competition to commemorate the end of World War One. Students were asked to portray World War One through a medium of their choice. This competition hugely engaged the students, who produced some incredibly heartfelt pieces of work. 

Entries ranged from sewn and knitted poppies; to photographs, poems, historical research and collages. Together, these exhibits have made an outstanding tribute to the fallen of World War One, which shows sensitivity and recognition of the enormous impact of the war. This can be seen at the front of the school. Particular congratulations to Isabella Farrelly for winning the overall best entry, and Ella Masterson, Hannah Birch and Bence Halasi for taking the prizes for each house. Second for each house were Holly Can-Blerk, Katie Rose and Jessica Thomas, with Thomas Walker taking the prize for the best historical exhibit, and Kain Dawson for the most historic exhibit. Well done to all students who entered this competition, to help the Ramsey Academy pay tribute to the immense loss of World War One.
