PUPILS at Cowbit St Mary’s Primary School designed and created a mosaic to celebrate 300 years since the school was built.

It took six pupils, aged between five and ten, and artist Fiona Gurney, seven weeks to produce the mosaic that is now hanging pride of place on the front wall of the school.

This year is the 300th anniversary of the school being bequeathed to the village by Thomas Andrew in 1712, who said the school should stand forever in Cowbit.

The mosaic is meant to show the reflection from the sun rays and was designed to look like a stained glass window. It was unveiled by the pupils of the after school mosaic club.

Headistress Maureen Martin said “It was made to celebrate the suggestion of the school being around for 300 years and acts as a legacy for the school being built.”
