Today we have to say goodbye to our two Wallabies as they have been returned to the IOM Hospice for their Wallabies Gone Wild campaign.
The students have been involved in the design and painting stages for each of the stunning Wallabies. We look forward to following the Wallabies Gone Wild trail over the summer months.
‘’Holly Junior – a view from RGS’’
This wallaby is inspired by the stunning views and scenery surrounding Ramsey Grammar School. In addition to landscape scenes the wallaby includes the Albert Tower, TT logo and traditional Manx tartan. Two designs were combined in order to include colours seen in the Manx landscape - blue for the sky, yellow for the gorse, green for the hills and white for the traditional whitewashed crofts.
The wallaby was designed by Year 9 students – Cian Gell, Taylor Carruthers, Holly Secretan, Charley Bell and Owen Pressley and students from across all year groups took part in the painting.
‘Patricia Puzzle Pieces’
This wallaby was inspired by four elements: Kandinsky, shapes, lines, colour and of course puzzles. Students wanted 'Patricia' to have lots of bright colours and a unique design.
The wallaby was designed by Year 9 students Casey Slous and Willow Watson however students from across all year groups took part in the painting.
