Science, flowers and murals – what’s the connection?



Over the past few weeks the Community Fund Commitee has been delighted to support a number of projects in the school community. To find out more check out our webpages, or see a summary below! We are also delighted to welcome a new Committee member – Diane Werhert was nominated by Decision of the CA on 7 July 2015.

It’s the end of the first school year in which the community fund has been up and running. In the run up to Somerfesto, the Committee received a number of applications and is delighted to have been able to approve three projects in the school in June 2015.

Science Festival: On 19 June 2015, the CFC formally approved an application from Steve Panicelli for funding for the fantastic prizes on offer for participation at the Science Festival.  The Festival itself took place during the Somerfesto and was a huge success!

Murals: The CFC also approved an application for funding in the sum of 234 euros for boat varnish to enable P5s from all sections to finish some stunning murals they had been working on as part of European Hours. These are now on display in the Primary playground. Many thanks to Richard Nagel and Virginia Georgescu for submitting this project and working with our children to brighten up the school environment!

Flowers: The CFC received an application from Maria Pezzati for materials to complete a Recyleart project being undertaken by some of P4 in European Hours. The purpose of the project was to allow children to work around the concept of waste and to create art out of recyled materials. Check out the results below!
