The Opua School Art Show opened on Wednesday night, September 21st, at The Opua Gallery on the wharf. It was a wonderful evening and our children’s art and talent was centre stage. The quality of art that has been produced by all our children across all rooms in the school is staggering. It is a “Must See” event and I encourage everyone to take some time out to pop down and view the show.
Firstly, I would like to thank Charlotte Scott for coming up with this fantastic concept and offer to me many months ago now. Her vision for showcasing our children’s art and the offer of her gallery for free were very, very much appreciated. Thanks must also go to Far North Holdings Ltd. for supporting her offer to us and our free use of their premises. My thanks and congratulations must also go to Linda Worthington who has put many hours into not only mounting and displaying much of the art but also inspiring our children in their art. Further congratulations to all our teachers who have, with Linda, guided our children on their pathway to producing artistic excellence at such tender ages! Finally, as always, many thanks to our PTA and support staff who have worked, under Ben’s guidance, collaboratively and with great enthusiasm, to help us present the art, get the show ready to open and man the show over a series of weeks up to mid October.
What a superb team effort!
