Papplewick art department enjoyed a visit from local artist Marc Chaumeton when he worked with year 8 boys during their current project of painting orchids.  Marc who is from Farnham studied at Camden Arts Centre, Central School of Art and Design, and Brighton Art School has worked in the design and advertising industry has now wound down his commercial work and now only works with a small set of clients so that he can concentrate on his painting and drawing. 

The art department at Papplewick is strong and regularly gains scholarships to top UK public schools and Headmaster, Tom Bunbury said " It was a great experience for the boys to welcome Marc into the art department, and they learnt much from him to help further with their work."

KART CLUB RACE DAY CANCELLATIONS DON'T DETER PAPPLEWICK FROM RACE TRIALS | The annual Kart Club races between schools from all over the country, run by Greenpower Ltd who provide all of the kits needed to make the battery powered electric karts were of course cancelled due to Covid over the summer but this did not deter Papplewick.

The races are for Year 6 boys only, so all of the boys who took part in the construction of the karts ( now of course in year 7) have had great fun taking part in in-house trial races around the school organised by Ged Parr who runs the activity.

Tom Bunbury, Headmaster said “This is such a popular activity and the boys took great care in constructing two magnificent karts so it was disappointing for them not to have been able to compete with other schools over the summer, but in-house racing proved a popular choice and highlighted some budding racing drivers!”
