schools takeover day 03

Students from local secondary schools ran a programme of events at the Forty Hall Estate, London, and accompanied me to local primary schools where the secondary students aided the pupils in their vegetable garden in the creation of a wormery.

heraldry kids event 02

This one day event arose from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s restoration of the Forty Hall Estate, in order to promote an awareness and understanding of national and local heritage.

We created a number of heraldic achievements where children could pick and mix their own motto, shield, supporters and heraldic elements to represent themselves and say a thank you to garden and conservation volunteers. The created shields were laminated for outdoor display and a colour photocopy made for each child (which looked metallic through the reprographic process). The children exhibited their work in the walled kitchen garden as a free public exhibition.
