Papatoetoe West Art Show

We held our school art show last week with all of our students presenting their creative masterpieces for the school to view. We also had some of our artworks selected to be displayed at the Papatoetoe Schools' Art Exhibition at Papatoetoe North School. Some of our classes made the long walk down to see the displays. Even though the walk was long, it was well worth it!

Eye on Nature

Creative Art Exhibition Winners announced

Papatoetoe West School is proud to share with you that our very own Room 23 students, led by Mrs Dhar, have won the 2018 Eye on Nature Creative Art Exhibition for the Primary Schools section.

Their art, entitled 'Miss You Moa' was inspired by Aotearoa's extinct and iconic flightless giant. It was constructed of 100% recycled materials and involved the participation of many students, staff and family helpers. Room 23 wish to extend a sincere thanks to the families who contributed to their artwork.

Room 23's sculpture, along with the other submissions, is free to view over the school holidays at the Manukau Botanical Gardens in Manurewa. A beautiful spot to admire these works of creative talent.
