School pupils present ethos artwork to Hospice

11 December 2015

Pupils from St. Peter’s CofE Primary School in Hindley, have presented one of four hearts they have made to Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

The hearts were made by the school's Ethos Group, demonstrating three of the school's core values - Respect, Friendship and Trust.

The four identical hearts will eventually go on display across all four corners of the local community, including at the school, St Peters' Church, the pavilion and the Hospice.

The children, all from years 5 and 6, made the hearts as part of an Ethos Group project with the Head of Art at Deanery High School.School pupils present ethos artwork to Hospice

Leanne Crompton, Assistant Principal at St. Peter's School, said: "We created an Ethos Group to ensure Christian Values are at the forefront of each pupil's mind. Our Christian ethos forms a vital part of everyday life and we believe that all our pupils should have the opportunity to develop a set of values they can use now and in the future.

"The children really enjoyed their visit to the Hospice to present the heart. They even got to see a piece of artwork on display that they presented to the Hospice a few years ago. This showed them how valued their work is by the Hospice as well as patients and families."

Alan Baron, Chief Executive at the Hospice, said: "The children from our neighbouring school, St. Peter's, have created a stunning piece of artwork and we will be very privileged to put it on display in the Hospice.

"The school's artwork has always engaged patients and families visiting the Hospice, providing a real talking point for people struggling through a difficult time in their life and I'm sure this new piece will do the same.

"We would like to thank the children for all their hard work and for continuing to support the Hospice."
