Children turn cardboard boxes into home, sweet home
Published 30/12/13



FIFTEEN cardboard houses decorated by Henley schoolchildren went on display at the Old Fire Station Gallery on Saturday.

About 200 pupils and parents visited the exhibition to see the work of pupils from Badgemore, Sacred Heart and Valley Road primary schools, Rupert House School, Trinity Pre-School, Mill Meadows Nursery, St Mary’s and the Henley Brownies. Several houses were themed around sweets while others were based on underwater and woodland scenes. Year 6 pupils at Rupert House created a haunted house with ghosts, bats and a hand lurching out of the window.

Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak came up with the idea and plans to stage another arts scheme at Easter.

He said: “It started out with a Christmas theme but it gradually morphed into the children doing whatever designs they wanted.”

Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak came up with the idea when launching this year’s competition to design his Christmas card.

He hopes it will become an annual event and plans to stage another arts scheme at Easter.

He said: “It started out with a Christmas theme but it gradually morphed into the children doing whatever designs they wanted.

“They really enjoyed showing their parents what they had done and I think the mums and dads were very proud.”
