An Assembly Rooms Message From Mr Ruszczynski

We want the School to be a Gallery. As people walk in they should see computers, technology, sports fields, science labs and other visible signs of a broad curriculum. Art has to play a major role in promoting the school values which are based on creating students with a broad view of the world.

The Artwork is of a very high standard and students should reflect on how high quality is reached. In the case of art, there is relentless hard work which produces the high quality at the end. In this world where things happen very quickly on MTV, You Tube and digitals visuals, the craftsmanship in some of the artwork takes a long time to reach perfection. This is a great example to young students.

Good Art raises aspirations and makes people think. The work produced by our students does this every day to nearly 1,700 students.

Mr Ruszczynski
