Following a recent Year 9 art project, a selection of student photography was exhibited in the ‘Wild Roseland’ Photography Competition and Exhibition at Gerrans Parish Memorial Hall on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 April.
The project was inspired by the theme ‘Our World, Our Planet’ and Year 9 students have been using their photographic skills to capture the impact of man-made materials and pollution on the natural environment, for example the devastating effect of plastics on our local beaches.
The exhibition also featured an exciting range of photography by the wider community, celebrating the natural beauty and bio-diversity of the Roseland area. Our students’ work looked fantastic and drew a lot of positive comments, as well as raising awareness about plastic pollution in and around the Roseland peninsula.
We are delighted to announce and congratulate our three talented prize winners for The Roseland Academy school category: Ciara (third prize), Leela (second prize) and Charlie (first prize) – and as always, we would like to thank the Roseland Festival and Wild Roseland teams for their generosity and ongoing support for the school.
