A SIDCUP special school has celebrated the end of its World Art Week with an exhibition.

Staff, parents and students at Marlborough School for 11 to 19-year-olds with learning difficulties enjoyed the display of pupils’ work including 3D and video presentations on ipads.

There was also face painting and dressing up as well as a display of world artefacts owned by staff. Bexley mayor Councillor Alan Downing was joined by deputy mayor Cllr Brian Beckwith for the cultural event on Friday (November 23).

Actress Victoria Alcock of Bad Girls, Call The Midwife, Doctor Who and Eastenders fame was also there to show her support for Marlborough School as a patron of the NSPCC.

Art and Design teacher Michael Quirke said: “We were really happy with the way it went and personally I am pleased especially with the way staff pulled together and made it a fun week and an entertaining one.

“The kids enjoyed it as they were able to see the work they had done all week on display and see people appreciating it as well.”
