Students mask excitement at tea with Lord Mayor
City of Liverpool College students were invited to meet the Lord Mayor recently after their work went on show in Liverpool’s prestigious Town Hall.
The students, studying on entry level and level one Art courses, were commissioned to produce a series of masks modelled on the famous Bafta trophy by organisers of the Liverpool charity fundraiser, Community Superstars Awards.
As a result of the exhibition, which went on display in the Town Hall foyer, students were invited to tea with Liverpool councillor and Lord Mayor, Erica Kemp, CBE, and taken on a guided tour of the City’s historic landmark buildings.
Class representative, Samantha Reason, said: “We really enjoyed the trip and it was an honour to be invited. The Lord Mayor is a great lady, and so encouraging. She said she would like to visit our end of year show and see more of our work!”
The masks will be presented to winners in each category at the next Community Superstars Awards, to be held later in the year.
Community Superstars Awards recognise achievements of outstanding individuals who carry out exceptional work in their local communities. Proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to local charity, the James Bulger Memorial Trust.
