The Rainbow Wall at Graham School was painted by children of key workers who have been attending school throughout lockdown.

The students were keen to produce a reflection of the immense efforts of the NHS, and appreciation for their own key worker parents.

The students painted the rainbow wall with the support of their teachers, including executive lead at the school Helen Dowds, who created the design.

The wall can be seen at the entrance to the school.

Ms Emma Robins, principal at Graham School, said: “I am immensely proud of our Rainbow Wall and the hard work undertaken to create it.

“We are delighted to have a permanent memory of the great work undertaken by the NHS during the pandemic, as well as a reminder of our school values – Honesty, Empathy, Aspiration, Resilience and Teamwork.

“The rainbow also reflects our school motto of ‘Grow, Learn and Achieve Together,’ which we have certainly done throughout the pandemic.

“Huge thanks to all of the students who worked on the wall.

“They all enjoyed the project and were a great team!”
