House Art & Chess Competitions 2017

On Tuesday 23 May, after school had finished for the day, we had our 2017 House Chess and House Art Competitions. It was a really great evening showcasing talent and creativity.


This year, the House Art Competition was held in Heyward Hall. The competition was structured so that the students were given a theme on the night and had half an hour to brainstorm ideas before the competition started. This year’s theme was Disney and Fairytales.

The tasks for each age group were as below:

Year 5/6 – Create a Diorama

Year 7/8 – Create Props and/or Sculptures

Year 9/10 – Create a Backdrop (for the Year 11/12s to post in front of)

Year 11/12 – Create Costumes for a Fashion Show

The results for this year’s House Art Competition are below:

1st Place – Darling

2nd Place – Ward

3rd Place – Harry

4th Place – Farley

5th Place – Clyde

6th Place – Baker
