Manea children transform school playground with mega mural

CHILDREN from Fenland are having more exciting break times after they livened up their playground when they painted the school buildings.

At the end of months of hard work and planning, Manea Primary School has been transformed by the children who painted a mural on the playground walls.

Working together with Atelier East, the pupils designed the artwork which will be unveiled later this month along with the new school buildings.

Karen Fevyer, who runs the schools two after school arts clubs, said: “I had a lot of fun working with the children and I am extremely impressed by their imagination.”

Karen Harvey, director of Atelier East, said: “It was a real pleasure to create this mural with such a wonderful group of young artists, they were all so helpful and hard working and the results are brilliant, they should be incredible proud of themselves and what they have achieved. It’s beautiful!”

Head teacher Pam Longstaff commissioned the project with the school’s friends and governors who wanted the children to create a space which inspired them to play, learn and interact.
