St Brigid’s Catholic College Lake Munmorah Year 11 student Claudia McCartney was honoured this year at the Maliga Art Exhibition when she was presented with the Mayoral Award.
The exhibition, now in its fifth year, is open to senior school students of indigenous background and is held every year at the Wyong Art House on the Central Coast.
Claudia’s painting impressed the judges with its ‘use of personal symbols and atmospheric feel’.
Four other students from the College also had their work featured in the exhibition. Year 8 students Kyra Kensey, Jazmin Walton and Bailey Moore submitted their paintings for consideration, while Year 9 student Taylah Gorton had on show a photograph which was inspired by nature.
