Remarkable Group invited Ivor Goodsite along to a school assembly

London

Six children from Wellington Primary School in Bow have been given the opportunity to see their original artwork displayed in public. Their pieces, designed around the theme “What Bow means to me”, have been produced and printed onto the hoardings at Linden Homes’ St Clements development on the site of the old St Clements Hospital.

Linden Homes had invited all the children at the school to enter a piece of artwork representing how they see their neighbourhood. The judges then had the pleasure of sifting through all the very engaging and colourful entries.

Karen Roake the sales and marketing director for Linden Homes’ Eastern said it was a tough job:

“The judges had to choose from some lovely and very original interpretations of the title. All of the entries were very colourful. They also had to take into account of what would look good scaled up on the hoardings. It was difficult to choose the winners.”

Remarkable Group then went to visit the school and took Ivor Goodsite along with them.

Whilst in the assembly Remarkable Group taught the children how important it is to be safe in and around construction sites.
