Timeline Canvas Unveiling

Wednesday 12th July 2017

Today at St. Gilbert’s we unveiled our history and art collaboration – the timeline canvases that we have been working on with local artist, John Hamilton. There was a great turnout of pupils, parents and governors with a guest appearance from John Hamilton himself.

These canvases will eventually be displayed permanently in our hall.
