Description

Arts Week at Pixmore Junior School was a huge success, thanks to Navesh Naidoo and David Clutterham from Topps Letchworth who donated materials and know-how to make this memorable mosaic. Teacher Jayne Clarke told Multi-Tile Mirror: “Nav and David were a fantastic help in making our beautiful mosaic. They gave us lots of their time and expert advice, helping us plan for some of the more technical aspects of our project.  All 237 children in the school drew pictures of what they thought was special about Pixmore and I was able to draw out a plan from this.”

“Every tile was placed by childrens’ hands and the craft room was alive with little fingers, nipping tiles into small pieces and gluing them down!  It was a unique and creative experience for all and the finished mosaic looks superb in one of our atrium spaces.”

“The mosaic  is of a tree containing symbols of what we love about our school – our open spaces; the nature and wildlife around us; our love of art and the arts; our after school clubs and the music that we love to learn and play.  Our Bronze Eco-school status and our dedication to recycling; sports and healthy eating is also represented in our mosaic.   Thank you Topps Tiles for your support.”
