More than 180 artworks by Christ Church Preparatory School boys were on display as part of the IPSHA (Independent Primary School Heads of Australia) WA Art Exhibition held at Santa Maria College recently.

Some of the best two and three-dimensional work by boys, from Pre-Primary through to Year 6, were chosen by the Prep School’s specialist art teachers for the biennial event. It included works from 24 IPSHA member schools.

Titled We Art Family, the exhibition was also the Head of the LW Parry Preparatory School Richard Wright’s final event as President of IPSHA WA after serving a two-year term.

Mr Wright said the boys’ pieces demonstrated the range and variety of the Art program at Christ Church. “We received very positive feedback from other schools and Heads of Art,” he said. “It highlighted the exceptional work by our boys, who are guided by our wonderful art staff.”

IPSHA events provide boys and staff with opportunities to meet and network with other independent primary schools around Western Australia. Other events for students include the Performing Arts Festival, Ecumenical Service, Chess Day and sports events.
