Artist Philip brushes off the competition

John Kyrle sixth form student Philip Shaw was successful in the Herefordshire and Worcestershire biennial art award 2007, being awarded 3rd place. His picture painted with acrylics on canvas, 'A Couple in the Rain', forms part of his A level portfolio of work and is based on photographs taken in London.

The competition was open to all sixth formers in Herefordshire and Worcestershire and attracted around 60 entries of a very high standard. The adjudicator Mr Arthur Morgan, retired director of art at Winchester college, [pictured with Philip] praised the work of the students as he presented the prizes.

Mr. Carroll, Philip’s art teacher was very pleased with the result. 'It is good for the students to have the opportunity to display their work in an exhibition of this standard and to be able to see other students work.' he said. 'John Kyrle has a good reputation in the competition which is held every other year and has achieved many prizes in the past.'

Also Highly Commended was Rhys Partridge for his piece entitled, 'A Sense of Place'.

The exhibition is open until Thursday March 8th in in St Edmund's Hall, Malvern College from Saturday, 3rd to Thursday, 8th March (closed Sunday).

Grease - The Live Performance

Last week's edition of Wyenot News showed some of the photographs taken during the dress rehearsal of the John Kyrle High School's production of Grease. The actual performances took place last week between Thursday and Saturday and I went along to Thursday's opening night. The photos below were taken during the actual performance.

The professionalism of the production was truly amazing. Staff and pupils had all worked extremely hard together on the musical, which was yet another outstanding success for the school.

The school would like to thank M.F. Freeman, Coleman's, R.K & K.M Powell, The King's Head, The Hope and Anchor, The Leadership Trust, Shawcross, Brandon Tool Hire, Clearwell Quarries and Synergy for their generous support, without which the production would not have been possible.
