SPS Exhibition of Artefacts and Antiquities

On Tuesday of this week the Peter Roberts Hall was transformed into a museum for our exhibition – and what an exhibition it was! The Year 5 & 6 children produced some amazing work of which they can all be incredibly proud. It was wonderful to see such a broad range of historical periods and interests on display and to showcase some of the great talent that the children have. 

I knew to expect some excellent work from the children, but I was and still am blown away by the calibre of all the exhibits and the time and effort that has been put in to produce work of such high quality. The children well and truly exceeded expectations and I am very proud of them, as I know many other SPS staff are, and I am sure you are too. 

Thanks for all the support from home in the lead up to the event and to all those who came along on the day; it was this support that made the event such a success and created a real buzz for the children. 

Judging the exhibits was a near-impossible task given the high standards of them; a special thanks to the staff members who helped serve as part of the judging panel. While all the exhibits are worthy of merit, staff were asked to select which, in their opinion, were the best of the best. With all the votes tallied and collated, the winners and runners-up for each year group are: 

  • Year 5 Best Exhibit: Anne Frank by Sienna P 
  • Year 6 Best Exhibit: Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima by Benedict Z
  • Year 5 Runner-up: Dinosaur fossil site by Shiven S
  • Year 6 Runner-up: Jose Rizal in prison by Eliana D

Congratulations! 

A number of other children in both year groups were also awarded certificates of special commendation and special distinction based on these votes – congratulations to all who received these. 

This was a great SPS community event. Thank you to all the children for their efforts to put this on and thank you again to all parents and families for the support with this as well.
