To bring the spirit of the Olympic Games to Aspire, the art department have been working with KS3 students to transform one of the fences in the outside break area into a stunning display of colour. The students have been painting the national flags of the countries involved in the games and have been learning about the symbolism involved in the games including the five rings, the flags and the flames, and some of this symbolism will be incorporated into the final display.

The finished project will be a team effort between the Art and Construction teams, and the wooden planters seen in the photos will provide the finishing touch to which I’m certain will be a stunning visual display, capturing the core Olympic elements of internationalism, spirit, value and participation.
