Pupils at a Staffordshire primary school have created a collaborative display on British values thanks to a donation of Libra board from Antalis and cutting services from Zund.
Each of the 70 jigsaw shaped pieces of Libra board supplied were to be decorated by pupils at Fulfen Primary School in Bruntwood, Staffordshire, to illustrate British values in school and the community, such as inclusion, caring, lifelong learning, aspiration and tolerance.
On hearing that the school intended to cut out each of the jigsaw shapes itself, Antalis contacted its partner Zund which was delighted to get involved. Using leading technology in its St Albans showroom, Zund cut all 70 tessellating pieces for the school.
Joanne Ashcroft, the teacher at Fulfen Primary School who first got in touch with Antalis to see if it would be able to supply any materials cost free, was thrilled with the support she received from Antalis and Zund. ‘We really appreciated Antalis’ support and the generosity showed Fulfen; it has made such a difference to the work we could produce,’ she said.
‘All the children involved in the project are delighted with what they have been able to create with the pieces. We have now pieced the boards together to create an interlocking display of the children’s illustrations of the values,’ she continued.
