Primary colours: art from junior schools on show at City Hall
An art exhibition showcasing the work of primary school pupils explores the question “Is Bermuda Another World?”
Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, joined schoolchildren from the public and private sectors to launch the ministry’s Primary School Art Show at the Bermuda Society of Arts in Hamilton’s City Hall.
Mr Rabain said the education department and teachers had “worked very hard” with pupils to produce the art.
He added: “All public primary schools, Warwick Academy, Bermuda Institute and Bermuda High School students have brought to life their creative imaginings and answered the question ‘Is Bermuda Another World?’.”
Mr Rabain said the show highlighted “issues that face us in our community daily and causes us to pause to reflect on the world in which we are living”.
Mr Rabain added: “I look forward to engaging with the artwork on display tonight and finding the time within my own quiet moments to reflect on the social issues presented through this medium.”
The exhibition, which opened last Friday, will end on April 1 and the work of middle and senior public schools will be on show from April 8.
