New Clarendon site to be awash with colour

Release Date: 15 August 2018

Clarendon Primary Centre’s new site will be awash with colour after a local resident, Romany Wood-Robinson, was awarded a £1,000 grant to create a mosaic on the building’s walls, accompanied by garden planters.   

The funding will help with materials to create the mosaics and garden planters to give the school’s playground area a distinctive and engaging look. The project will see pupils consulted on what the mosaic will be with both children and volunteers taking on an active role in the creation of the project.

Clarendon is a day school for children aged four to sixteen with special educational needs.

Cllr Penny Frost, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services and Schools, said:

“This is a lovely way for the community to come together and take ownership of a project that will make their new school site unique and their own.

 “I am particularly impressed by the intention for the mosaic to be co-designed alongside pupils and I look forward to seeing how this turns out.”

Romany said:

"The funding from Civic Pride has made such a difference! Whilst we were confident of volunteers and basic materials, being able to add the extra planting, paint and mosaic materials will make this an even more memorable and sustainable project."
