Caerleon Schools’ Arts Awards is held annually at the Celtic Manor Hotel and attended by the Mayor of Newport
Background to Schools’ Arts Awards Event: For the past 19 years there has been a Schools’ Art Awards event supported by 4 local Primary schools and the Caerleon Comprehensive School.
The artwork, selected by staff, represents the best pupil response for skill and/or effort to a theme set by the Caerleon Festival.
This theme together with starting points is sent out to schools by Christmas. It is not a condition of entry but the ideas are generally taken up. The year 2020’s theme is:
2020 Looking at my World – 2020 Fi a fy Myd
What I see about me – Beth gwela i o gwmpas fi
OUR ENVIRONMENT – OUR BEAUTIFUL PLANET EARTH This is where I live!
To look at and think of things growing and living on Planet Earth.
Besides art work schools are asked to submit examples of creative writing from the Primary age groups Yr3 –Yr 6 and the Secondary age groups Yr 7 – Yr 9.
The Caerleon Festival acknowledges the sponsorship of Celtic Manor Hotel in providing venue and hospitality for Awards presentation event.
