St Ives Holds Virtual Fundraising Exhibition

This week, St Ives School in Haslemere has been holding an Art Exhibition inspired by the Amazon Rainforest to raise funds that will be shared between the school and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). 

Every child, from Reception to Year 6, has produced a piece of art, based on their learning of life in the Amazon Rainforest.  Many have painted Amazonian animals, whilst others have been inspired by South American landscapes or indigenous people.  Every piece of art has been beautifully framed and is on display in the school hall.  The school would normally invite parents and the local community into the school to see the work in person, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the school has held the exhibition virtually.  Parents have been invited to buy their child/ren’s artwork, with raised funds being shared between the school and the WWF.

Kay Goldsworthy, Head Teacher at St Ives, said “Our Autumn Art Exhibition plays an important part in our school calendar and we are thrilled to be combining it with teaching the children about the Amazon Rainforest and the environmental challenges it faces.  The standard of work from the children is outstanding and it is clear to see they have been deeply moved and inspired by what they’ve learnt.  As a Green Flag Eco-School, we are committed to ongoing development of our pupils’ environmental knowledge and awareness. We are grateful that modern technology has allowed our community to enjoy this exhibition, albeit remotely, and we look forward to seeing how much money we raise for WWF.”
