Katy’s artis­tic an­i­mals

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

A wildlife mu­ral has been com­pleted by an Ash­ford School pupil – for pupils at an­other school.

Bad­gers, foxes, squir­rels and hedge­hogs all fea­ture in the art work by Katy Peart which has bright­ened up the early years foun­da­tion out­side area at High Halden Pri­mary School.

Katy, 19, who is hop­ing to be­come a pri­mary school teacher, was asked to do the pro­ject by her art teacher, who knows High Halden’s head, Lind­say Roberts.

She started it in Novem­ber and it took longer than ex­pected be­cause of bad weather. The early years classes, which are called Bad­ger, Fox, Squir­rel and Hedge­hog, were asked about the de­sign.

“The pupils came up with the ideas,” said Katy. “They were great. The mu­ral is all their de­sign.

“It has been a great ex­pe­ri­ence which counts to­wards my work ex­pe­ri­ence. The pupils have taken an in­ter­est in it as it has de­vel­oped.”

Katy hopes to go to Can­ter­bury Christ Church Univer­sity in Oc­to­ber to do pri­mary teach­ing.
