We are very proud to announce that St. Philip’s RC has been awarded the Artsmark Gold award for a fantastic fourth time. The award is presented to schools who display a commitment to the arts and strive to utilise creativity at the heart of all learning. Pupils, parents and teachers have worked hard to achieve this fantastic award and we aim to continue to make the arts a major part of our school’s curriculum in the future.
In the Autumn term, pupils from Y2 upwards entered a competition to design a character which Salford City Council could use to promote the importance of Energy Saving. There were some fantastic ideas; well done to all those who entered. Our pupil’s creative minds must have been working well as the following pupils were commended:
1st Prize: Bronwyn Dennis
2nd Prize: Kerys Hurley
3rd Prize: Kate Watson & Niamh Doran
