The Mayor of Calderdale made a visit to an Elland school as part of its centenary year.

Nader Fekri met head teacher Kevin McCallion who took him on a tour of the school.

After speaking to a group of students about his work as Mayor, he was led to the art and music departments by head boy Hassan Adnan, where he met students and discussed their work.

Dr Fekri was also invited to view students’ work at the Peter Brook Art Prize Exhibition at Smith Art Gallery in Brighouse.

“It was a great boost to the students who were proud to show their work not only in the art room but also at the opening of the exhibition too,” said Rachel Lumb, head of art.

The exhibition of artwork continues until February 18.
