A tenacious team of tutors from the Creative and Media Studio School at Netherhall Learning Campus are dusting off their walking shoes as they gear up for a big challenge in aid of The Kirkwood and Snowdogs Support Life, Kirklees.
The college, who has signed up to decorate a Snowdog pup as part of the region’s highly anticipated art trail, will be taking their involvement to the next level with the teaching staff at Netherhall Learning Campus walking a staggering 17 miles from Huddersfield to Marsden to boost their fundraising efforts.
A cause close to the hearts of both teachers and pupils alike, the decision to get involved was an easy one with the event providing an ideal opportunity to support a fantastic local charity, while promoting the Creative & Media Studio School to the wider community.
Students are in the process of finalising the design for their Snowdog pup and are liaising closely with the tutors to bring the sculpture to life. An amalgamation of all the students’ individual work, the design is set to be something truly spectacular with each of the talented young artists at the college bursting with creativity.
James Armitage, Head of the Creative and Media Studio School, comments: ‘Our students already have affection towards ‘Dave’ the Snowdog pup and are incredibly proud to have him going out into the public to demonstrate what we do here at the college.
‘While the students are bubbling with excitement, our tutors have decided to step up to make the most out of the art trail, walking the canal tow path to raise a substantial amount to support The Kirkwood and everything they do for people across our community.’
The school will soon be launching a fundraising page where any donations to their challenge will be most welcome. Keep an eye on their website and social media channels for more information.
