Congratulations to some of our Year 9 students at Downlands who produced a wonderful piece for the exhibition “Our Place” as part of the Annual Schools Exhibition 2015 at the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne.

The students visited the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum back in February and were inspired to produce small houses using a variety of materials. The houses were then mounted on stilts and lit from within with candles. The exhibition was opened by the Worshipful the Major of Eastbourne, Councillor Janet Coles who was particularly impressed by the work produced by the Downlands students. The students who produced this fabulous piece were: Ben Miller, Tom Wright, Phoebe Campbell, Molly Fullard, Emily Chinn, Will Worthington, Gaia Brunnarius, Hana Smith, Phoebe Hampson, Callie Allison, William Godwin, Jonah Brenner, Jemima Callghan, Aleigha James and Aisha Alfoldi. The exhibition is open from 27 March to 31 May, Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm and is well worth a visit.​
