Heroes & Villains 2017

All S1 pupils have been working on some fantastically descriptive imaginative fantasy stories, which head off to the publisher on Friday 13th. As part of the English department project, Art and Design worked with the S1 cohort to design the front cover of their book, ‘Heroes and Villains 2017’.

We were lucky enough to have our Head Teacher, Mr Rafferty, judge all the many creative entries, with some help from Mr Cunningham, CL Mathematical Sciences. It was a long, painstaking process, but we can now announce the top 3:
1st place and this year’s book cover is designed by Miluska Tarazona 1T2 2nd place is designed by Jasmine Vettraino 1T2 3rd place is designed by Joanne Reeves

Well done everybody who took part – some beautiful, colourful and creative designs.
