A 35-WEEK project to revamp a village primary school has been completed – thanks to finishing touches from arty students.
Pupils at Congresbury’s St Andrew’s Primary School got busy with their paintbrushes, to create this dazzling artwork on fencing around their new pond.
Youngsters completed the colourful designs with help from construction firm Willmott Dixon during school refurbishment works.
The project included adding a new building linking the infant and junior school together, and installing a new roof over a courtyard area.
A pond has been relocated, and the bright new artwork will encircle it.
Willmott Dixon building manager Neil Matthews said: “We wanted to give something back to the students at the school and create a lasting legacy for them.
“We’re really impressed with the effort that all 223 students at St Andrew’s have gone to in creating this unique art project.”
