The Art and Design and Photography department successfully big for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to create the Wythenshawe Poppy Walk up the lead up to Armistice Day. Students were able to go on a trip to Media City to photograph the poppy wave, grew poppies in our roof garden and created a number of displays using photography, mixed media, and textiles. Local primary school students created photo montages at open evening, and the winning entry won a prize of a PS4 from Learning Unlimited, and had their work included in the final exhibition. 100 poppies were displayed around the school by the Art Committee and the project continues throughout the term. You can keep up to date with the latest on this project by following the art department on twitter @NGHS_ART.
