Ugandan High School Displays CBA Art

A stunning wall hanging crafted by CBA Year 7 students is now taking pride of place in a Ugandan High School.

The fabric banner, which was made up of many different panels, was presented to the staff at the Iganga High School recently, by the staff from the charity which links the Discovery Centre, an education resource centre in Uganda with Northamptonshire schools.

The students spent many hours on the project assisted by Director of Art Jacqui Brown and Alison Bagnell.

Mrs Brown said: "Just as our Year 7 students have been working here on their art work, students in Uganda have also been working equally hard in preparation, getting ready to send their art work to us, here at CBA; a truly international exchange of ideas."

Richard Johnson the Uganda-UK Schools Linking Partnership, which set up the association with the centre, said: "I took the brilliant wall hanging to Uganda and I presented it to Aggrey the Deputy Head Teacher of Iganga High School.

"He was very impressed would like to thank everyone involved.   Everyone who saw the wall hanging thought it was fantastic."

Last year two Sixth Form students and two CBA staff members made a visit to the Discovery Centre.  In October two more students and another member of staff will again make a visit.
