Last updated 10:13 PM on 17 February 2015

The Visual Arts Faculty has been awarded the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation award for excellence in teaching, promoting and engaging young people in Visual Arts education.

The Faculty has been recognised as the best in NSW for their outstanding work with Higher School Certificate students in last year's HSC Visual Arts exam in particular, but also over a number of years. 

Every year, the State's top 240 HSC Visual Arts students are represented in the annual Artexpress Exhibition which showcases the student's Bodies of Work and is viewed at the Art Gallery of NSW as well as regional and city galleries throughout the year.

In an outstanding effort, five Bowral High School students currently have their work being shown in the Artexpress exhibition this year and the school is very proud of their achievements as well as the commitment and expertise shown by the Visual Arts Faculty.
