The JDA Perera Art Gallery was full of activity when parents brought in their children for the Awards Ceremony and subsequent Exhibition of the 7th Annual Art Competition that had been worked out on March 26th 2016 at Wycherley International School. There were over 300 students from Montessories in and around Colombo who took part in this competition. Wycherley always endeavours its best to enhance Art in the lives of our Students.
The paintings were framed, labelled, named and hung up for viewing. It was nice to see the keen parents looking at the paintings with great awe. There were 27 Consolation Medals while all participants received a Certificate of participation. The 3rd Prize was awarded to Methuja Wijekoon of Little Star Montessori, Nugegoda. In 2nd Place was Benuli Janisha of Visakha Nursery. The overall winner was Mohamed Zeeshan Shafik of Daybridge Montessori – Union Place.
Parents were visibly touched by the opportunity that Wycherley has extended to their Children. A child’s world is from where he walks confidently into the world and we will try to build that confidence.
