Schools Arts Awards 2021

Caerleon Schools’ Arts Awards were 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 had been a Schools’ Art Awards event supported by 4 local Primary schools and the Caerleon Comprehensive School.

The artwork, selected by staff, represented the best pupil response for skill and/or effort to a theme set by the Caerleon Festival.

This theme, together with starting points, was sent out to schools by Christmas. It was not a condition of entry but the ideas were generally taken up. The year 2020’s theme was:

2020 Looking at my World2020 Fi a fy Myd

What I see about meBeth 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.

WE  NOW AWAIT  TO SEE HOW WORLD EVENTS DEVELOP AND WHETHER WE ARE ABLE TO PLAN FOR A CAERLEON FESTIVAL 2021.


Besides art work schools were 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 always acknowledged the sponsorship of Celtic Manor Hotel in providing venue and hospitality for Awards presentation event.
