Churchill Showcase


Students applied their knowledge of Analytical Geometry and created beautifully complex geometrical artworks. The students were very excited to showcase their expertise in both Math and Visual Arts through a wonderful display. Many put in countless hours just to impress their peers, and this healthy competition created a collaborative learning environment that continued even outside of school. Great job to all of you!
