The school has a wonderful partnership with the Fruitmarket Gallery.
This year, Class S4 were involved in the Garcia Family Schools Workshops which took them to the Gallery for the morning to do a workshop based on the exhibition by Jac Leirner. This was then followed by a workshop in the art room at school. Jenny Bell Harman (artist) led these workshops and the pupils were totally engaged in two very active sessions. Everyone really enjoyed making our time-lapse movie which was exhibited in the Gallery last weekend.
A few or our pupils went to the opening of the exhibition in the Gallery on Friday 27th October, along with pupils from Prospect Bank, Drummond High School, St Mary’s RC Primary, Royal Mile Primary and St Thomas of Aquin’s. The Edinburgh artist, Callum Innes was there as a guest speaker, making the whole occasion a very special one.
We were very proud of our young people from Pilrig who stood up and spoke in front of the audience. I attach photos of some of the pupils at the Gallery.
