Unveiling the Funtington Footprints clay mural at Funtington Primary School

The project, which involved pupils, staff and governors at Funtington Primary School, created six clay footprints to symbolise the school’s core values of caring, respect, persevere, best, safety and independence.

The project was led by artist Rosie Hewitt with support from arts leader Sue Hawkins and the City of Chichester Decorative and Fine Arts Society. The school’s Arts Council also helped with the planning of the project.

The finished result was fantastic and greatly admired by the children and visitors at the unveiling ceremony.

Sue Hawkins said: “The children have gained so much from the project. They have all helped to turn their ideas and designs into such distinct footprints that they are really proud of.”
