Pupils from Ysgol Cedewain in Newtown have been hitting the London art scene, exhibiting at the famous Tate Modern Gallery.

Through the Lead Creative Schools Scheme, Ysgol Cedewain were selected to present their work at the Tate’s 'Week of Encounters’, which explores the use of creativity in teaching and learning.
 
The scheme aims to promote new ways of working in schools by developing an innovative and unique programme of learning with the help of creative practitioners and resources.
 
It complements and supports a school’s current programme of work whilst also addressing any particular learning challenges. It seeks to nurture the creativity of learners so that they achieve their potential and grow to be well-rounded individuals.
  
Lauris Palshis, Co-ordinator at Ysgol Cedewain said: “With the help of pupils, we selected and invited Creative Practitioner, rap poet Martin Daws, to lead a collaborative project which focused on oracy and literacy.
 
“After a successful exhibition at Oriel Davies Gallery, Newtown, we were one of only 32 schools out of over 500 who participate in scheme, to be invited to present at the Tate.”
