Photography with Shelley has been one of the gems of our TY programme. Year after year Shelly introduces our students to this art form. The photos produced by our students have found their way into many book/magazines and many adorn the walls of our school corridors. It is incredible the standard to which Shelly takes our young photographers after such a short space of time. And Shelly does all this with the most respectful, dignified, inspiring manner. A true professional of her art form and in her manner of working with young people!
