A huge thank you to graffiti artists Nick from ‘Olas Art’ and Elliot from ‘Leeds Urban Art’ for completing our two bespoke art murals on the KS1 and KS2 walls. The joint project between the PTA, Hyde Park Source and the school has been a big success! Parents and children have been working hard to design the murals. Last week, Nick and Elliot gave art workshops to all classes, allowing all the children to have an input into the final design of the murals. Once again, a massive thank you to everyone involved! Which one is your favourite?

Spring Bank Primary took part in anti-bullying week between 16th-20th November 2015. This year, the children were asked to ‘Make a Noise about bullying’. Throughout the week, the school and children helped to raise awareness about bullying in several ways, including a special assembly with musical performances, a play written and performed by a group of year 6 pupils, anti-bullying bunting and posters and special discussions in PSHE lessons. The children wore blue clothing in support of ‘Blue Friday’ to raise awareness of anti-bullying week. Finally, all the children, staff and some parents gathered outside on the pitch to ‘Make a Noise about bullying’ together for all of Headingley to hear!
