7th June 2019 — On the final Friday of last term, Art Teacher, Mrs Parsons and Art Scholar, Isabelle S in Year 9, went along to the Surrey Wildlife Trust's 'Wild Surrey' Art and Photography Exhibition to which we had submitted some entries, including a painting by Isabelle. We were delighted when she was awarded the Under 18's category prize for 'Best Painting' for her 'Bluebell Badger' piece seen in the background of this photograph. In addition to the accolade of winning the award, Izzy was given £100.00 prize money. A fantastic achievement!

Her work will form part of the exhibition by Surrey Wildlife Trust in Guildford this summer and will be exhibited in Guildford House Gallery until 16 June. The aim of the exhibition is to focus on local wildlife, their adaptation to the urban environment and wildlife under threat. Entry is free.
