Bud­ding de­sign­ers look to the an­i­mals for mu­ral in­spi­ra­tion

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

SE­NIOR pupils from Beech Hall School were given the chal­lenge of de­sign­ing and paint­ing a mu­ral to dec­o­rate one of the in­fant class­rooms, run by the Beech Hall Par­ents As­so­ci­a­tion, BHPA.

The win­ners were an­nounced on the fi­nal day of the spring term with paint­ing get­ting un­der­way at the start of the sum­mer term.

Win­ner Grace from Year 9 said: “I was re­ally sur­prised when the BHPA an­nounced my name as the win­ner of the art com­pe­ti­tion. “I was over the moon! “My class­mates Becky and Amelia came 2nd and 3rd.

“Af­ter Easter my friends in Year 9 and I made a start on paint­ing the mu­ral in the in­fant cloak­room.

“We in­cor­po­rated ideas from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place de­signs then started to draw them out and paint them.

“I re­ally en­joyed see­ing my de­sign on the wall and work­ing with all my friends.”

The mu­ral fo­cussed on an­i­mals, in­clud­ing ze­bras and gi­raffes, and sea crea­tures.
