Grade 12 Visual Arts and Design

The theme for the G12 Visual Arts final practical examination was Baggage/ Burden. The girls thought broadly around the topic which resulted in unique and interesting artworks. View the gallery.
The following girls: Robyn Rainier-Pope, Vivienne Banks, Maddison O’Connell and Hannaa Adams are all members of the 6th Rondebosch Scout Group and have recently been involved in a community service project to raise money for the Guide Dog Association:

These girls, along with other members of the scout troop, met frequently over the last two months to make various goods, which they then sold to raise money for the organisation. The project concluded at the end of September and they were able to raise over R5 000 for the Guide Dog Association. Well done!
