The event recognised the hard work of Year 4 pupils during their Arts Week at the end of the last academic year, which resulted in them achieving their Arts Award DISCOVER.

The youngsters received certificates to acknowledge their work and enjoyed refreshments with the three councillors.

The Arts Award supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders in their communities, facilitated through Tameside Council’s Cultural Services – which works to increase opportunities for active participation in arts, culture and creative learning.

The children focused on textiles, learning about the artist Nicola Jarvis and some of her famous work before coming up with their own textile creations.

The presentation also celebrated the St John’s Drive school achieving Arts Mark Gold last year, based on the quality of its visual art, dance, music and drama provision.
