Easter in the Snowy Mountains is always an opportunity to showcase our region, and specifically Jindabyne. The town is alive with visitors enjoying all aspects of the Snowy Mountains: the lake, the trails, Mt Kosciuszko, and of course the art on display.
This year the quality of the work on display from both our students and staff was outstanding. Congratulations to Mrs Witherdin and the Visual Arts students on their work. Class displays were polished – the Academy of Art (Aqua Spheres), alongside the primary entries from Year 4/5 and Year 6. Milan Dragovich was awarded with the Youth Award in the Lake Light Sculpture for his depiction of “A Child of War”. We also had displays from Eve Donnelly, Daniel Ternes-Dixon and Laura Hobbs.
In the Lions Easter Art Show, Sebastian Zylinski won his drawing section with an incredible portrait. A huge congratulations to Jack Machin as well, Jack won the “spirit of the snowy’s” award for his wonderful painting. Also, highly commended were Letitia Murphy, Spedding Pearce and Sophie Paske in the painting sections. It is always so wonderful to see our talented students demonstrating an appreciation of and talent in the arts.
Some of our students (and parents) also assisted with volunteering at both events and this service to our community is essential to the success of these Easter events.
Thank you to Mrs Katie Witherdin, SMGS Head of Faculty – Creative Arts and Technology for her work in coordinating, supporting and preparing our students for this years Lake Light Sculpture and the Lions Easter Art Show.
