Art project celebrates London 2012 Olympics at Sprowston Community High School

To celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Games students at Sprowston Community High School created their own imaginative responses to the 'five Olympic rings' image, working with artist Maggie Campbell.

The rings are traditional symbols used to promote and celebrate the Olympics and represent the five parts of the world that participate.

The students used the idea of the rings and colours to create five different 3D faces out of willow and tissue paper to represent the people and the continents.

Margaret Quigley, assistant headteacher, said: 'The students really enjoyed working with Maggie on the Olympic theme, the faces not only helped develop students' creative skills but really evoked the sense of community spirit and excitement attached to the coming of the games.

The faces will be used to celebrate the Sprowston cluster schools sports celebrations in June.
