Newquay Tretherras and Treviglas Community College Sixth Form Students are collaborating to organising a competition that will showcase young peoples perception of Newquay.
The whole idea behind the competition is for young people to illustrate what they think of Newquay as a whole and present their creations to the Newquay Town Council.
There are a variety of different age ranges submission categories from: Reception to Year 2, Years 3-6, Years 7-9, Years 10-11, and Years 12-13 with prizes available for each of the different age groups. The key is that young people submit “What represents Newquay to them” in either artwork, or photographical form.
The submitted visions will be displayed at the Lighthouse Cinema and will be built into the Newquay Neighborhood Plan, which will help shape the future of Newquay for the next 25 years.
Currently ‘The Creative Capture Team’ of Tretherras and Treviglas students, are reaching out to Primary and Secondary students from around the local area, asking for submissions of either photos or pieces of art that represent all aspects of life in Newquay.
The collaborative work in this project will also be part of the Sixth Form students Business coursework. They will aim to put together marketing materials as well as organizing an event for the end of the competition.
Newquay Tretherras student Jack Finnegan commented, ‘Speaking on behalf of the Creative Capture team, we are absolutely ecstatic to be in involved with the Newquay Neighborhood Plan. Everyone involved with the Plan has been working extremely hard to raise the profile of the competition and its benefits for the community. We’ve already had over 60 entries and expect many more to come’.
Mr David Nicholls, Teacher of Business and Enterprise at Newquay Tretherras explained, ‘I’ve been involved with the Neighborhood Planning process since the schools were first invited and lucky enough to work alongside some of last years Tretherras Year 13 students who put the initial brief in place. It’s a real pleasure to now be able to work alongside such dedicated students to continue this competition and to push it forwards. I can’t wait to see the Completion outcomes.
Treviglas teacher Hayley Bissenden added, ‘We are so pleased to be involved in such an exciting project for our local area, with a project run by students at Treviglas for the benefit of their community. The students are managing the event as part of their Business Coursework. They are enjoying the challenge of managing such an important event and working with many local businesses.’
The Creative Capture Art and Photography competition will continue to run until November the 13th, where upon all submissions will be collected in and judged by a panel of judges before an exhibition at the Lighthouse Cinema in Newquay.
