Back to the Future Day

EVENT: Back to the Future Celebration
DATE: 22.10.15
BLURB:
Back to the Future day celebrated the date in the popular 1980’s movie the characters went into the future. It took place in Mr Wellcoat’s room. The day was organised by Dylan, Ross, Lucy and Dale. The lunchtime experience mostly consisted of clips from the movie and we organised a ‘Design a Hover-board’ competition. The winner was Zack from S1. We also produced lots of objects inspired by the film, which are on display in F053. It was very popular with teachers and pupils and we wanted to celebrate this iconic and timeless movie.

PEOPLE INVOLVED: Dylan (S2), Ross (S4), Lucy (S2), Dale (S2).
Winner of competition was Zack (S1)

'Friends of Strathaven Park' logo design

EVENT: ‘Friends of Strathaven Park’ Logo design
DATE:
May 2015
PEOPLE INVOLVED:  
S2

 

In Art and Design we have been working on designs for the ‘Friends of Strathaven Park’ logo. I drew a bouncy castle and a hot air balloon. We learned how to scan our drawings onto the computer and included things we thought represented the park.

 

 

We then took our individual drawings and put them together on the computer in the shape of a tree.

They are going to use our logo on posters and on their new colourful banner (see photo of us holding the banner).

We enjoyed this project creating something for a local community group.

    New House Shield Project

    In Art and design we designed a new shield for our new house group, ‘Avondale’. We looked at the other house shields for inspiration. Alexandra came up with the final design and we all worked on painting the final shield in lots of tints and shades of purple. We hope you like the new design, we have really enjoyed working on it during lunchtimes’. (By Jenni, S1)

    Enterprise Challenge - 'Terrabytes'

    Departments have been working on this exciting project for a few years now with many successful products being financed, developed, designed, packaged and sold to the Strathaven community.

    Marketing and branding has been supported by the Art and Design department, production and catering by Home Economics and finance by Business Management.

    The ‘Li’l Nibbles’ Company has sold shares to help start up their business, advertised their product, and produced some delicious chocolate truffles. The effort pupils have put into this project is commendable, and the sales so far have been very promising! A big thank you to all staff and parents who have supported this project!
