Catholic Schools Week was celebrated at Queen of Apostles School starting January 29. The highlight was the school’s Authors and Artists Faire, which displayed more than a thousand pieces of the student artwork from this academic year. Various paintings including water colors and pastels, as well as models and sculptures were on display. The various pieces of artwork came from the dedicated effort of each student through the year under the patient guidance of the Queen of Apostles Art teacher, Mrs. Theresa Knight. This wide range of work also included recreations of history lessons while some others depicted interesting aspects of stories read in class. The James and the Giant Peach projects from the fourth-grade students were a real treat for the viewers!
Apart from the work created in the school’s art program, original pieces were also showcased, which included essays, short stories, and poetry. These were all proudly framed, labeled and displayed in the Father Jim Mifsud Community Center over the course of the Catholic Schools Week celebrations for the community to view.
