CHILDREN have had their artwork displayed at South Hill Park.

To celebrate the Easter performances of DreamWorks Madagascar - A Musical Adventure at South Hill Park, the arts centre invited Sandy Lane Primary School to create and present artwork inspired by the stage show.

Mayor Tina McKenzie-Boyle was on hand as the students showcased their work.

James Rawson, Key Stage one phase lead, said: “The children were really excited, and the teaching staff thrilled to see how engaged they were, it really did spark their imaginations and we are very proud of what they have achieved. By creating a public art exhibition we were given a unique opportunity to reach far wider than the school community.

"The children have been looking forward to seeing their artwork on display and showing it to their friends and family. The school is keen to promote creativity within the curriculum, so to be involved with our local arts venue helps the children explore their creative sides, engage with the local community and encourage those who may consider a creative future career.”
