Preserving Our Coral Reefs: Artwork made by the students of Uriah McPhee


We are delighted to invite you to our new exhibition 'Preserving Our Coral Reefs', featuring artwork made by the students of Uriah McPhee. In response to a school-wide project exploring ocean conservation, imagined by science-coordinator, Mrs. Shaphell Knowles, students from kindergarten to sixth grade made beautiful sculptures depicting underwater landscapes.

The students were encouraged to use recycled material and the results are so creative and resourceful; you can see recycled-cardboard sharks, treasure made from beer-bottle tops, coral fashioned out of pasta, octopuses cut out of plastic cups, and of course students used a lot of glitter, Styrofoam and pizzazz, drawing from our roots in junkanoo.
