Year 6 children at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Primary School in Knutsford have created a fabulous farewell gift for their school – a huge mosaic sign in the design of their school emblem!!
The project has been co-ordinated by Mary Johnson on behalf of the school’s PTA and has involved all of the Year 6 children, with extra help from pupils in Y5, Y4 and Y3. Mary arranged for me to run workshops with the children over a couple of days. They all listened very carefully and worked diligently to achieve these wonderful results, grasping the techniques involved remarkably fast.
Also on hand to help throughout the making process, ex St. Vincent’s pupil Ishbel (who now attends Hull University) very kindly gave up her time to help and inspire the youngsters.
On Monday the sign will be grouted and then installed in pride of place on the front of the school building. It is a lovely way for the children to show their appreciation for everything that St. Vincent’s has given to them during their time at the school.
