An artist gave up his time to create a mural in a Weston-super-Mare school last week.

Aleks Nocny has painted the image, based around his favourite children’s story The Little Prince, near the entrance of Oldmixon Primary School.

Aleks got in touch with the school as he wanted to donate art to three charities in Weston.

Deputy headteacher Roxanne Simpson said: “We are really pleased with what he has done.

“We have had a lot of positive comments from parents and children.

“The children have enjoyed coming to see Aleks work.”

Headteacher Heidi Hudd said the work had been popular during the school’s open evening.

She said: “The children often stop and look when they walk past.

“I know we will be using it in literacy as an inspiration for writing.”

Aleks wants to provide a Wizard Of Oz-inspired mural for another Weston school.
