St Bonaventure's



One of our former students learned today that he had been successful in gaining a place at Goldsmiths University in London to study Fine Art.

Twenty year old Djofray Maukumbu came to St Bon's from St Helens Primary School and stayed on at Sixth Form to study BTEC Art. He left us last year to do an Art Foundation course at B6 in Hackney. He recently exhibited his work entitled Lost Souls at the college. It was a great success too.

Djofray, who's from Canning Town, was in school today to tell his former teachers, Ms Craddock, Ms Huddle and Ms Campbell his good news as he keeps in touch with his inspirational mentors. He added: " I wanted St Bon's to be the first to know I got in. I am so excited and all my dreams have come true."

Alison Jones, Lecturer in Art Practice at Goldsmiths, said: “Djofray was one of the hardest working students we’ve ever had, and we are thrilled that he has won the ALUMNO/SPACE award. It is always inspiring to work with the teenagers who attend our Summer Schools, and to see them develop into the calibre of artist that Djofray has become is especially pleasing.”
