Graduation // June 17

Twice a year we celebrate the incredible talent of our students with a Graduation celebration and public exhibition! This June we were blown away by the standard of work presented – it made it very difficult for our Educators to award our special prizes. Congratulations to all our graduates and those listed below who deserve special mention for their creativity and commitment!

“Be passionate, be yourselves and please come back and tell us about your achievements!” – Amanda Grace
