Topical Photography - Lea and Goodrich Schools

Above: Children at Lea primary School filled shoe boxes with presents for needy children, which will be distributed world wide by the charity, 'Samaritan's Purse'. Pictured with the children above is Peter Heath, who designed and made a 'Values Tree' for the school, to raise children's awareness of 'values'. The giving of the shoe box gifts coincided with this month's value, which is 'Hope'.

Below: Artist, Carl Arroyo, 'Artist in Residence' is working on a major school wall hanging with contributions from all 116 pupils of Goodrich Primary School. The photographs were taken during an open day at the school, where parents were able to view the art, which is a painting based on the local environment - nature and River Wye around Goodrich. The hanging is going to be 24 ft square and will be based on the painting which the two girls are holding in the photograph below.

Bottom: Goodrich School are taking part in the British Council 'Comenius 1' project and are currently enjoying year one of the three year project, which includes primary schools from Turkey, Poland, Bulgaria, Shropshire and Goodrich.

The project encompasses cultural exchange and pupil visits. It will eventually spread to the local community, leading to the possible twinning of communities, with all the exciting possibilities this could create. Teachers Tony Griffiths and Claire Jennings recently visited Turkey and the hospitality they received was wonderful.

Head Teacher, Tony Griffiths said, 'The schools we visited provided a fascinating insight into the Turkish education system. The staff, pupils and whole community were so friendly and interested in the British education system. It made us feel very humble but at the same time, very excited about future project work.'

On Wednesday, 16th November teachers, Mrs Haine and Mrs Dix will be joining colleagues from Shropshire for a four day visit to schools in Poland. In the photograph are Mrs Jo Haine and Mrs Jennie Dix, who are bound for Poland and Mrs Claire Jennings and Mr Tony Griffiths who visited Turkey.
