A MURAL which has been enjoyed by pupils at a Weston school since 1958 has been restored by two members of staff.

Artist Warren Storey worked with students from Weston School of Art to create a Noah’s ark mural on the main staircase at Windwhistle Primary School 55 years ago, but it had since become worn and faded.

Headteacher Lyn Hunt said: “The staff worked so hard and with great care to make sure their restoration did justice to the original mural and we are extremely grateful to them for their time and skills.”

The school would like to hear from any students who were involved in painting the original mural and can be contacted on 01934 629145.
