The children of Argyle Primary School have taken inspiration from the environment to produce spectacular artworks on a range of themes and using a great variety of materials and techniques. Recycling rubbish into art has been a consistent theme, with plastic bottles turned into wonderful sculptures of faces in the style of Beninese artist Romuald Hazoumé and some amazing neon-lit recycled sculptures that were put on public exhibition. The children’s experiments on air quality inspired them to create a wonderful mural for their ‘Cleaner Air Roof Garden’.
Jemima Wade, Head Teacher at Argyle Primary School, said: “We have taken great pride at Argyle in putting environmental awareness and sustainability at the heart of our curriculum, with an emphasis on encouraging children to be pro-active learners. We were delighted and very grateful to be selected as Regional Champions for the Total Green Awards, for the recognition it brings of all these efforts.”
