Pupils Sign their School in Mosaic

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.

All fixed down, grouting next.......

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.

    It has been a real pleasure working with Tracy. Her skills, her charm and her dedication have inspired us all. We are so grateful and so proud of what we achieved under her direction. Our large wall mosaic displaying our cherished school emblem now takes pride of place at the main entrance and is lit up when it’s dark for all to see. Our mosaic, carefully created with resilient weatherproof materials will last for years to come. A wonderful project. Thank you.
