Exhibition: Suicide. Don’t hide it. Talk about it

Two pupils from OLHS participated in an artists workshop where they created a poster about teenage suicide. Caity and Catherine’s work is featured in an exhibition of the work created by secondary school pupils in North Lanarkshire at the Summerlee Industrial Museum in Coatbridge. There are on average 61 suicides per year in North Lanarkshire- a very shocking fact and being about to talk to someone or see an artwork might make a difference and save someone’s life. The pupils received a £ 30 voucher for HMV and their artwork looked beautiful mounted and framed – well done girls!
