Cavanagh encourages the school to draw on their artistic genius!
For the past few years, Cavanagh organised an inter-house recycled fashion show. However this year, the house wanted to follow the trend of creating Africentric challenges and so hosted the first ever recycled sculpture challenge.
The houses had to form teams of five people and bring their own recyclable items. They were then given the theme “Rhythm in/of Africa” and had half and hour to build a sculpture that to them represented this theme.
The houses worked hard and quickly and for the most part, the results were spectacular. Aside from the end products, the girls seemed to enjoy letting their creativity flow and the teamwork was phenomenal.
Each sculpture was then judged by Wynberg’s Visual Arts teachers - Ms Ox and Ms Saporetti. They took into consideration originality, appeal, creativity and execution amongst other factors. In the end Constantia took first prize, but each sculpture was a winner in its own right.
