Report from Lerryn Primary School on the unveiling of their new banner
Friday 20th December 2019
On Sunday 15th of December, the official unveiling of the banner project occurred at the Lerryn School and St Veep Church christingle and Nativity. A few days later on Wednesday 18th the School invited members of the Lerryn W.I. to have Xmas lunch with the children.
The banner was shared with the pupils and the children were able to finally thank the team for their hard work and support. The project ran for 9 months and included sewing from all children in the school. Children made mini versions of themselves as well as reflecting life at the small but mighty school.
The Head of school Mathew Blunt initiated the project but he stated: “ the final outcome was beyond my wildest dreams. The beauty, detail and overall presentation makes it a work of art and an important historical document on the life of a small village school. Children showed patience and care and loved working with the local community. It was amazing to see their focus. I have invited the group to start a new project in the new year linked to reading and making book marks and then a further project involving cooking and cake decoration linked to our local produce group. Our school prides itself on making learning real and impactful. This project demonstrates what can be done when everyone pulls together”.
The banner will remain at school and be taken to all future school linked events.
