The Rotary Young Artist Competition is organised by Rotary District 1020.
P4 enjoyed taking part this year and entered some ‘Harry Potter’ themed art work as part of their class novel work at the time.
The competition aims to encourage young people to:
•experiment with creativity
•use traditional or contemporary methods of fine art
•show interpretation of their chosen topic
•express their ideas through the medium of fine art
Members of Dunbar Rotary Club visited our assembly on Friday to congratulate three pupils who got through to the final stage of the competition. Well done!
We had a great day yesterday meeting staff from Dunbar Grammar School & learning about six figure grid references. It was all related to our current topic of World War Two.
