Caerleon Schools’ Arts Awards held annually at the Celtic Manor Hotel and attended by the Mayor of Newport
Background to Schools’ Arts Awards Event
For the past 18 years there has been a Schools’ Art Awards event supported by 4 local Primary schools and recently by the Caerleon Comprehensive School.
The artwork, selected by staff, represents the best pupil response for skill and/or effort to a theme set by the Caerleon Festival.
This theme together with starting points is sent out to schools by Christmas. It is not a condition of entry but the ideas are generally taken up. This year’s theme is:
Only One Wales – Dim ond un Cymru: To celebrate the coming together of the children of Wales and the children of other nations. Cultural Friendship
In recent years we have invited schools to submit 2 examples of creative writing from the Primary age groups Yr3 –Yr 6 and the Secondary age groups Yr 7 – Yr 9 that have been produced during the school year.
The Caerleon Festival acknowledges the sponsorship of Celtic Manor Hotel in providing venue and hospitality for Awards presentation event, Sainsburys for the prizes.
