The houses took the responsibility to put up the best display,and points and prizes were awarded by year group and by discipline. These were then added up to give this year’s victorious House.”
The points awarded were as follows:
We were delighted to have Dr Ceri Thomas to judge the competition. He is the Curator of Art at the University of Glamorgan, responsible for the public art gallery Oriel y Bont at Pontypridd and also the University’s Art Collection Museum. He is an Art Historian and artist in his own right who specialises in the visual culture of South Wales since 1945.
