Gosberton Clough and Risegate School can be seen in a completely new light after pupils took up pen and paper to reflect what their classroom experiences mean to them.

Youngsters worked with South Holland artist Tony Quinton and teaching assistant Gabrielle Smith to create a mural depicting the school community in glorious colour.

The event was organised by school council members, with the best entries included in a mural which now sits proudly on a wall inside the school building. School Administrator Ann Templeman said: “The school council ran a competition FOR the children to represent our school through words and pictures, then Tony put all the designs together to make the completed piece with the help of Gabrielle and it looks magnificent.”
