STUDENTS have been showing off their artwork as part of an exhibition.

Pupils from the junior and senior schools of St John’s College in Southsea displayed their art and raised money for blood cancer charity Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Maggie Callan, art teacher and organiser, said: ‘I want to thank all the staff and parents who have supported the event, but most of all the students for their fantastic contribution to such a good cause.’

Theo Parkes, eight, in Year 4, said: ‘It is a fantastic exhibition. I have five pieces of work on display – I showed my mum and she said they were great.’

Adam Andrews, who is 11 and in Year 6, created an Anakin Skywalker mask. He said: ‘It took a lot of effort. The blue blade was very tricky I had to get it exactly right. I love my art classes because I love creating things.’
