Great Marlow School creates spectacular Remembrance Day artwork

| |

Students at Great Marlow School have completed a major art project as a Remembrance Day tribute, and it looks stunning!

Over the past 5 weeks, the school’s students collected over 1600 plastic bottles as part of a recycling drive to rid the school site of rubbish. Then, they cut, heated, sprayed and glued these bottles and turned them into beautiful poppies – one to represent every student and staff member in the school.

The poppies have now been woven together to form a poppy ‘wave’, with the excess flowers planted at its base in the entrance to the school, and looks spectacular alongside an ‘unknown soldier’ and commemorative plaque, which have both been made at GMS as part of the project.

Kat Joseph-Stewart, is the Head of Art, Craft and Design and told us “The project has been a real labour of love, and has caught the attention of the many visitors we have to the site each day, along with the community of parents and carers who have seen it.”

Below is a link to the behind the scenes video on Youtube, to help get an even better idea of the full impact of the project.

Well done GMS, we think this is an incredible achievement!
