'While Sheperds watched their flocks' interpreted by chuch school pupils

Date: 11 December 2013
THERE IS COLOUR, cotton wool and sparkles aplenty in a seasonal display of artwork by church school pupils at Guildford Cathedral.

Twelve schools submitted pieces of work along the theme of 'While shepherds watched', with some schools making sure every single child contributed to the final result.

The diocese's education team were so impressed with the work that they used three designs as the basis for their departmental Christmas cards.

Schools officer Jane Whittington said: 'Schools interpreted the theme in a variety of ways; collage, painting and textiles; lots of glitter and cotton wool was involved this year!

'Several schools made sure that every child in the school contributed to the final display; one school used every child's finger prints in their display.

'The standard of work is very high and the work was being admired by cathedral visitors even while we were putting it up.'

The display will be up in the cathedral until Thursday 16 January 2014.
