We are also delighted to share with you some work that Yasir Hafeez in Yr 13 has been doing for us in Art & Design.

As a graphics student he selected 'Mind' as a client and has created an A-Z of Wellbeing set of cards for them. (see link below)

Underneath each clean graphic he has hand-drawn and developed each of the logos/images individually producing, not only an impressive collection showcasing his artistic and design abilities, but also a highly effective resource to promote Wellbeing.

Our congratulations to him on this really impressive piece of work.  A-Z of Wellbeing Cards - created by Olavian Student Yasir Hafeez
