Pupils feed their creativity
OAK Tree Primary School, which was recently awarded healthy school status for its work in encouraging pupils to enjoy a healthier approach to life, has just completed its latest weeklong project. As part of the ongoing efforts to promote better lifestyles, youngsters have created a major piece of art for the school, with the help of artist- in-residence Christine Thomas. They spent last week working on two huge banners depicting different fruit, vegetables and grains, and they will be erected in the new school hall on the Oak Tree Road, South Ashford site. Pupils selected their still-life subjects and recreated them in a variety of ways from acrylic and 3D paints, fabric, sequins and mirrors, to computer imaging.
