St Johns School wanted to make the new entrance building more part of the school by reflecting the school children within as well as the school community.

The children did some fantastic drawings inspired by their school activities, many of which were included in the final design, put together by the artist.

During an intensive week of workshops the children really got to grips with the making of the mosaic. Hour-long sessions allowed the children to really learn about the processes and contribute to the final piece.Parent helpers were welcomed to each session and teachers also participated.

The piece was installed by the artists during the holidays and opened at the beginning of term.
