The theme of this year’s competition is ‘Journeys’.


As a school we are very much engaged with supporting and guiding students through their education and on to the next stage in their life journey, and so, this seems an apt theme for two permanent works to be displayed in school. Students, staff, and parents may wish to consider as inspiration the idea of a physical journey, a cultural or philosophical movement, life as a journey or even the journey made in making a piece of art.


The competition is open to all year groups of students from all three campuses, all staff from the three campuses as well as parents of current students at ISM. Entries will be judged by the Art Dept with an announcement of the winners on World Childrens’ Day, 18th November.
