In addition, TGS children also participate in art competitions throughout the school year. Recently, the Independent Schools Association held a competition themed around ancient Egypt, in honour of the discovery of pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb. Two children in Form 5 and Form 6 were selected to enter their vibrant and detailed 2D and 3D pieces in the contest. It’s clear to see that TGS children are budding young artists!
