School mural

A MURAL to commemorate a school’s 50th anniversary has been unveiled, with 363 children depicted in ceramic.

Pupils at Deer Park School in Wingerworth, painted self-portraits on tiles, which were fired by Jo Myhill, of Iownajem ceramics.

“The mural has been a fantastic project to be a part of and all of those involved have enjoyed their participation” she said. “Hopefully it will stand the test of time and be enjoyed by future generations of Deer Park children.”

The school celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, but plans to install the artwork on time were scuppered by the freezing winter temperatures.
