GQ Members Hand Over Anniversary Wall Hanging to Lakeside Primary School

10 Nov

On 8 November GQ members Hilary Carney, Monica Dennis, Pam Stead and Isobelle Davis visited Lakeside Primary School in Cardiff to present the school with a wall hanging to mark the school’s 50th anniversary.

It is a project that they have been working with the children on over the last year.

The main panels focus on events that happened during the 6 decades that the school has been open and the top panel acknowledges the many clubs that the school runs, its links with St Gerard’s School, Lesotho and the work of the Parent Teacher Association. The hand prints at the bottom were created by the reception class. The central panel shows the school’s special 50th anniversary logo created by a year 6 pupil and the school’s motto – Living and Learning Together. The whole thing is decorated with dragonflies which are a feature of the school’s logo

The wall hanging was unveiled at the school’s assembly and well received with lots of oohs and aah’s from the children.

The children have been invited to enter a competition – to either count or guess how many dragonflies there are on the wall hanging – and the prize – chocolate money – yummy!!!

GQ members involved hope that the wall hanging provides happy memories of the schools 50th anniversary for many years to come.

This month Janice Gunner visited Glamorgan Quilters giving a talk on the Saturday and running a workshop on the Sunday.

The workshop was focused around patchwork origami with triangle and square patterns devised by Janice. These are ones that she made earlier
