12 Year 9 pupils were chosen to work with SLDC and Unity Radio in Manchester on a project to regenerate the skate ramp in Lightburn Park.
The school’s art department was approached by SLDC as they wanted young people in the town to have an input into the designs and hopefully we will also be involved in the painting which will take place in the summer term.
SLDC had worked with Unity Radio before on similar projects in the region and they were also able to run a small workshop with our students on some of the techniques that will be used.
This was a great opportunity for the students to contribute to large scale art work which as well as requiring the usual art and design skills, tested their ability to work and plan as a team, and to consider the site and its potential to improve part of their town.
School Angel works with lots of big shopping brands in the UK which have agreed to donate a portion of the profit, they normally make on your shopping if you use the School Angel website to visit their shop. You are guaranteed to only pay exactly the same price, for whatever you buy, but UVHS will also receive a donation.
