2015 Malton School Celebration Trophies

Each November Malton School celebrates the work and life of the school and its students over the previous twelve months. There are a number of awards for performance in, and contribution to, different subject areas. Each has a perpetual trophy, kept in school, and an individual trophy, which the students take away and keep. I have been making these for some years now. There were 41 made this year. 21 of these were my standard disc design, but others were more individual. Some photographs are below.
