Hillside Primary art competition

Hillside Primary School held their third annual art competition in partnership with the Rupert Museum on Wednesday November 22. The teacher who initiated the initiative, Abigail Cloete, said they are proud of their pupils. “This year our themes were inspired by insects, plants and flowers with our Grades 1 to 3. Twenty seven pupils participated as well as our drama group who performed a nativity story.” They host their art clubs every week for children to enhance their arts skills at school, she said. “Sometimes children don’t get exposed to this skill and genre of creativity. They have talent and we want to showcase that and enhance their skills,” she said.
