Corpus Students Excel at Atwell Youth Awards

Once again, Corpus students have been chosen to exhibit their artwork at the annual Atwell Youth Awards, held at the Atwell Gallery in Alfred Cove. This year, we achieved a number of Highly Commended awards across the various categories, as well an overall prize winner in Year 12. Of the seven entries submitted by the College, five received awards – this is a fantastic achievement for both the Visual Arts students and the Visual Arts staff (teachers Julie Pannell and Gaby Fabris, supported by art technician Trevor Bly).

The entries were innovative and creative, showcasing the highest standard of work across all visual arts disciplines and year levels. Exhibiting and showcasing student artwork outside the immediate College community provides an opportunity for students to strengthen their creative spirit. Exhibitions such as the Atwell Youth Awards allow the community-at-large to engage with student work and celebrate local talent. The Visual Arts team believes these opportunities continue to build resilience and confidence amongst the students.

Congratulations to the following students for their awards:
