Well what an end to an emotional week as we say goodbye to Hamilton Senior High School forever. After 56 years, this iconic, strong and extremely proud school will be demolished making way for a housing estate 😢. While this part is extremely sad, it's the thought of not working with my colleagues again as we are all moving on to different schools that is the hardest part. 😣😭
'Once Hami, Always Hami', is the title of my painting and the ethos of everyone who has ever worked there, attended there or in a lot of cases, did both, and we will always live by this.
Undoubtedly, these were the best two years of my working life, and it was during my time here that I discovered my painting talent.
While this painting was originally painted for one extra special colleague, it was also used as a promo on a postcard for our formal closing ceremony, which everyone who attended received one. Every staff member and every student also received one, so I hope that these are cherished, as soon this sight (and site) will no longer be here.
Once Hami, Always Hami. 😍💗
