Mrs. Annette Gadsby from our Art Department has been invited a second time to be part of a Teachers Advisory Committee for the Art Gallery of NSW. Her last time on this Committee was eight years ago, and she found it very stimulating and rewarding.
This Committee advises the Art Gallery on how best to use their exhibitions and resources to develop programmes that support the New South Wales Art Curriculum in schools. Another of our art teachers, Mrs. Juli Allcorn, has also served on this Committee in the past. Mrs. Allcorn has been responsible for our wonderful submissions to the Gallipoli Memorial Club Art Award, in which John Colet has been consistently the only school to take part, and so far we have always been hung as finalists.
The Art Gallery finds the input of teaching experience and feedback from these teachers extremely valuable in developing and analysing current and future programmes for schools.
Congratulations to Mrs. Gadsby. This appointment is a reflection of the high standard of work done in the John Colet Art Department.
