The children and staff at Churcher's College Junior School & Nursery were excited to unveil a very special mosaic as part of the celebrations to mark the 300 year anniversary of the school.
The mosaic, which is permanently displayed on the outside wall of the school's 'Studio' Performing Arts building, was created by the children and staff in collaboration with Mosaic Artist, Kim Porrelli.
Every child from Nursery up, as well as all the adults in the school, had the opportunity to add tiles to the mosaic ensuring it was a whole team effort. In addition, the children had the opportunity to design some of the integral individual elements, such as the leaves and birds giving it a unique Churcher’s style.
Kim Porelli was extremely impressed in production with the knowledge the pupils shared with her about mosaics and the high standard of work and creativity displayed.
A tree was chosen for the design to make a connection to the Tercentenary Wood, another Churcher’s 300 initiative which has delivered a new wood for Petersfield at Penns Place in Petersfield, home of the Senior School.
