Students emulate Spencer's style

STUDENTS AT ELLESMERE Port Catholic High School have followed the style of one of England's greatest painters to produce a new work of art for the school chapel.

The picture, a reproduction of Stanley Spencer's 'The Last Supper', was painted by Year 12 Art students, Christine Henesey, Seodhina McGill and Katie Hampshire together with the help of Chester College PGCE student Lucy Edwards.

Spencer's original work was painted in 1920 and currently hangs in the parish church in Cookham, Berkshire. He painted a series of last Supper paintings set in traditional and familiar British settings. This particular painting was chosen for its appeal to young and old.

Year 9 pupils at the school have also been displaying their creative talents with various items of clothing designed and produced by the students for the Street Children of Calcutta.

The clothes were produced as part of a class textiles course. They were presented to sisters of the Missionaries of Charity — the order founded by Mother Teresa —

and then sent to Calcutta.

Miss O'Shea head of Home Economics at the school said the pupils had worked extremely hard to produce beautiful clothes for the children.

"The response from the pupils was fanastic, they gave the project their full support,' she said.
