All houses put on a wonderful show, one which highlighted the diversity, hard work and imagination of our pupils’ artwork and display skills.
We were delighted to have the artist Mr Robert McDonald as our judge, assisted by Society of Friends of Christ College member, Mrs Ann Mathias. Robert Macdonald is a painter and printmaker and has become well known for his paintings of landscapes and farming life around his home in the Usk Valley near Brecon.
