Students from local special school Sunfield and sixth formers from Haybridge High School in Hagley, took part in a joint creative project as part of Sunfield’s Sunshine Week campaign.
Students from both schools made hand-crafted yellow themed mobiles and artwork to hang off the large oak tree in front of Sunfield’s main building. The idea was to create a temporary eye-catching display to raise awareness for the school and charity, who support children and young people aged 6 -19, who have complex learning and behavioural needs including autism.
Georgina Forrest, Sunfield Partnership Development Manager said; “It was great to see our students and the sixth formers interacting with one another, sharing and showcasing their art work and decorating the tree together.”
As part of the campaign local offices, day nurseries and groups have been holding yellow themed cake sales and dress down days with the total raised so far over £1,200 for the school.
