PUPILS at Spalding’s St Paul’s Primary School showed their artistic side by winning a mosaic competition.

Reception class children were asked by Molsom Opticians to design a mosaic of the eye using any materials they wished to highlight the importance of eye health for youngsters.

The competition was judged by the public who chose St Paul’s as the winner.

The children’s mosaic used the “eye” of a peacock feather as the iris.

Andy Molsom and Bridget Scase from the opticians presented them with a cheque for £50 to go towards the cost of the outdoor stage they are making. All of the children also went home with some sweets.

Andy said: “Seeing the children’s faces light up when they found out they’d won was wonderful. Only a few of them had ever visited an optician, which demonstrates why our campaign is so important.

“The next stage is to visit primary schools and talk to children about their eyes.”

All of the competition entries will be on display in the window of the practice in Hall Place for two weeks.

They were all of a very high standard, and everyone in the community is encouraged to have a look at the clever designs.
