Throughout term 1 and the beginning of Term 2, Year 8 students Renato, Oscar, Fox and Year 11 student Isaiah, have been working on a triptych artwork for the Sydney Catholic Schools Clancy Prize Art Competition.

This Friday, they will be submitting their work to Australian Catholic University (ACU), to be judged and exhibited along with other Sydney Catholic Schools. The theme for the this year’s exhibition is ‘Celebrating 200 Years of Catholic Education’.

The group of artists have created a triptych which reflects our own unique history with the subject matter of Blessed Edmund Rice, Brother Murphy and our own students. This is alongside elements that symbolise the land our school sits upon. The artwork emulates the unique school of Waverley in the eastern suburbs and how these elements combine to make Waverley.

On 21 May we invite everyone to come and view this artwork at ACU and the presentation of awards. We also wish the best of luck to Renato, Oscar, Fox and Isaiah for the competition selection process.
