About 1,400 children from Bournville, Oldmixon, Milton Park, Windwhistle and Walliscote primary schools went to the Tropicana for a day out to celebrate the values of the trust.

Media and arts agency Boomsatsuma led an arts and crafts session for the students. The children created small sculptures which will be put together to create an underwater piece of art for each school.

Windwhistle headteacher Lyn Hunt said: “It has been a fantastic opportunity for the five schools to meet up and have a grand day out.”
