It’s always great to learn that one of our students has done well in an independent competition, so you can imagine how delighted we were to hear that no less than seven of our students were all awarded prizes in the 2020 Maltings Art Competition!  The theme of the competition was the ‘History of St Albans’, with the students producing their own artwork and entering it online during the lockdown back in spring.

The organisers of the competition came to Loreto recently to present the winners with medals and prizes in an outdoor ceremony.  Gabriella di Gregorio in Year 11 was presented with a cheque for £250 for being the overall competition winner!  The Art department was also awarded a cheque for £1000 for producing the most finalists out of the 13 schools which entered the competition!  The manager of the Maltings Centre, Mr P Corrigan, warmly congratulated all the finalists on the high standard of work they had produced.

The other prize-winning students are: Giorgia Pasqualetti, Wara Gregory, Emilia Hudson, Juliana Bautista MacDonald and Sharon John Philips (in year 11) and Molly Wegenek (in year 10). All the finalists’ work will be displayed in a public art exhibition at St Albans Town Hall at a date to be announced. The Art Department is very proud of all the students who entered work for this competition. Well done to everyone!
