Some of Year 6 ave been involved in a ‘Big Local’ project creating some fantastic art work. Last Tuesday they met the Mayor of Gateshead, Allison Ilderton-Thompson, when she officially opened the art installation at Charlton Walk Park. The whole piece consists of fifty individual boards depicting different aspects of the sights, and sounds of historical and modern day Bensham. The children are rightly very proud of what they have done in helping to brighten up the local area. Our children understand that their gifts and talents have an important part to play in the local and wider community. The UN Convention on the |Rights of the Child tells us ;
Article 29 Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
Well done to all involved!
