In late 2010 Darell School held an art week on the theme of Fitness. With the Olympics on the way and interest starting to build what better subject could there be for a mosaic project during the art week.

Children from years 5 and 6 worked on the mosaic using glass tile, unglazed ceramic and aquarium pebbles. They devised a secret code to create the border pattern. Less dexterous students worked on the lettering using pre cut quarter tiles and waffle boards. Great care was taken with the background andamento and the final result is now a fitting memory of a truly remarkable event in British history.
