Students ARTiculate Their Way To Success

Year 10 students proved they were more than a match for their older competition during a special event at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

The ARTiculation session saw students conquering their nerves to give a short presentations to other pupils and workshop leaders in front of a piece of art in the Lichfield Street gallery.

They had been tasked with exploring the art works through observation, discussion and research before presenting their findings. ARTiculation is a national initiative that gets young people talking about the arts and develops the essential key life skill of effective communication.

And Moseley Park students did the school proud, taking home the following accolades:

Best pretentious use of historical vocabulary – Taliyah Sprackling and Skye Stokes

Best team work – Konrad Rajman and Jaskaran Jassy

Strongest narrative – Ruth Flavell and Niall Goodridge

Most salient points – Riley McTaggart and Thomas Johnson

Most thorough research – Angela Buerke and Faith Warrender

Mrs Holland-Bright, who took the ten students to the event, said: “Students made hard competition for their sixth form counterparts in the workshop. Gallery staff were very impressed with Moseley Park students’ mature attitude and sophisticated vocabulary when they were presenting. I was very proud of them indeed.”
