We looked to the traditional wall painting of the small village of Sirigu in the North of Ghana for our inspiration for the P5 paper globes. We used natural colours to paint symbolic animals and create the geometric patterns. Check out www.swopa.org/ an organisation that supports the women artists of this very special place.

To conclude of ‘Keep Our Environment Clean’ theme P7s work was focused on ‘upcycling’ (something that happens here on a daily basis). In groups students designed and constructed an object of their choice using newspaper, bottle tops, old water sachets and tin cans. Sorry these photos don’t do all their hard work justice.

The litter in the school playground at the end of the day is a sight for sore eyes. Surprising as there is no janitor and it is the pupils themselves would do the cleaning and sweeping every morning. To raise awareness, talk and advertise our plight for a cleaner school we embarked on a bit of graphic design with some successful results.
