Staff and students in the Faculty of Health Sciences showcased their artistic talents in the Health Sciences Student Council Art Competition, which concluded with exhibitions in the Bernard Fuller Building and the Groote Schuur Hospital.
The theme of the competition was "Life in Cape Town", and about 30 entries were received ranging from oil paintings to pencil sketches. The competition was aimed at improving the faculty's work and study environment, and offered cash prizes totaling over R4 000. The first prize of R1 500 went to second year student Lerato Kobe (pictured left with a representative from Adcock Ingram which sponsored the prizes). Ilhaam Adams took the R1 000 second prize and Chun Kei Cheung won R500 in third place.
SHAWCO Arts, who teach art to children in Manenberg, also contributed to the project by holding their own competition and sending in their best entries, which were judged alongside the other entrants. Winning children received art supply hampers.
