Presentation of cheque newsheaderA discussion following a staff training session last autumn has blossomed into the renewal of a relationship between Amery Hill School and the Alton Decorative and Fine Arts Society (ADFAS), which was first established some three years ago. Acting Head of Art, Mrs Alison Miller, explained that she was keen to incorporate printing as an option for those undertaking GCSE Art, but without a printing press there seemed little hope of this being achieved. That’s when ADFAS got involved again and in addition to their Committee agreeing to donate £500 towards the anticipated cost of £1100, they secured a further £350 from the Hampshire branch of their national organisation and an additional £250 from the London HQ. At a recent presentation to the Art Department, ADFAS Chairman Niven Baird handed over a cheque which has enabled the printing press and associated materials to be ordered ready for the printing of students’ work to take place from September.
