Children from Lichfield’s St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School are marking the opening of the £8m Franciscan view older people development, with a special unveiling ceremony for their community artwork.
Year five will be meeting residents on 19th November at a special ‘tea party’ opening celebration, before unveiling a collection of jigsaw shaped art pieces they have created as part of a geography project.
The artwork, titled “Community – young and old together”, focuses on how the school pupils see the Lichfield community and what they think of the local area.
Earlier this year the class visited the development during construction, taking a tour of the 54 home building while it was still a metal frame. Now it is completed, residents at the older persons scheme will once again throw open their doors so the 9-10 year olds can see what a difference a few months has made.
We’ll be posting photos and videos from the event on the Bromford Newshub, but in the meantime check out the Franciscan View videos below or our photo collection on Flickr.
