Trinity School launches book of pupils’ art and photography

Talented pupils at a secondary school have produced a book showcasing their artwork.
Youngsters at Trinity School on Strand Road, Carlisle, have produced the Trinity Aerie book of art and photography.
Six staff from the school went on an exchange to Missoula in Montana, USA, a few years ago to share ideas and produce a book called Aerie International.
Alan Mottershead, headteacher of Trinity School, said: “Aerie International seeks to promote greater international understanding through publishing art, photography and writing from around the world.
“Each year pupils from Trinity have their work published in the journal and some have been prize-winners too, which has given them such a confidence-boost.
“We then challenged ourselves to do the same – to publish our own version, which would allow us to circulate more widely in school and in Carlisle the artwork and photography from our Aerie International entries.”
The production work was led by Alex Messenger, a former Trinity pupil who is now at university. Mr Mottershead added: “Alex began it while he was here and has finished it off as he starts his second year at university.
“It’s been a long undertaking but Alex has been superb – indefatigable in pursuing a high-quality publication to celebrate pupils’ creativity.”
A reception to launch the book was held last Friday in the school’s new entrance hall.
“We are grateful to local businesses who have supported the venture through advertising and sponsorship,” said Mr Mottershead.
Trinity Aerie is on sale at the school and costs £5.
