Making art from rubbishPosted: 7th May 2019
Primary school children are teaming up with a wildlife park to tackle waste.
Pupils from Little Parndon Primary Academy are working with Paradise Wildlife Park on the HEART9Helping Endangered Animals project.
Lyn Edgley, SEN at Little Parndon, said: “As part of Paradise Wildlife Park’s sustainability mission, they have invited us to take part in this new project. It will involve collecting litter to create a sculpture or art piece which will help to communicate the message of a variety of endangered species, focusing on African animals.
“The children see lots of programmes and news on television featuring pollution and animals, but being a hands-on project it brings it all to life. It gives them a greater understanding of endangered species and the effect of pollution.”
The pupils’ artwork will be displayed in a special exhibition at Paradise Wildlife Park this month.
