|Five Elms Primary School, Romford, London RM9|
|The brief was to celebrate the life of the Headteacher who sadly
passed away in 2012. Pupils drew objects and things they wanted to represent her and the artists
incorporated glass beads from some of her necklaces.|
The six circular panels were to be celebratory, colourful, happy and fun.
"The children enjoyed the sessions, fantastic outcome. Well worth it!"
|Over 400 pupils and staff took part over a week of workshops, helping to create these mosaics, giving them a chance to contemplate and remember. The bright and cheerful pieces now have pride of place in the new garden at the front of the school welcoming everyone, every day. The peaceful garden has a fountain, wind chimes, willow structures planted by the pupils and their beautiful mosaics - a great space for exploring, relaxing, teaching and playing - a lovely legacy.|
"Sapphire Class really enjoyed being part of this special project.
Thank you to the team for being so accommodating."
Project Co-ordinator and Class Teacher
