Creating community links with art

Our students have joined forces with local residents and an artist to complete three wonderful mosaics for the school which reflect our motto; Nurturing Hearts and Minds.

The eye-catching mosaics have been created over the course of a year with the help of local artist Clare Goodall and residents of the Williams Place Retirement Living Plus development in Great Western Park.

Our students loved sharing their artistic ideas and designing the mosaics with Clare and all the home-owners who were very encouraging. It was a great joint project with us all and developer McCarthy and Stone which resulted in three beautiful pieces.

Artist Clare Goodall said: “It was great to have the opportunity to work with the students at Aureus School and the homeowners at Williams Place.  It is always exciting to work on projects that bring the community together to build lasting relationships and I am thrilled with how the mosaics turned out. They look fantastic on the building and I hope they will help to build an even stronger sense of identity for the school.”

The mosaics were designed to reflect our values, to represent the importance of nurturing the hearts and minds of the whole child.

Ciara Hilley, Divisional Marketing Manager for McCarthy and Stone, said: “The mosaic making has been a huge success and it is great to see the mosaics displayed at Aureus School. The homeowners enjoyed meeting the students and showing their artistic flair, and it has been an extremely rewarding project for everyone involved."
