MORE than 50 students have created a vibrant art wall and growing area as part of a project to transform empty spaces.
Pupils from years 7, 8 and 9 at St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School transformed a previously disused area at their Berrys Lane grounds into somewhere where students can relax and work in 12 weeks.
The Vibrant Schools project is designed to educate the pupils about eating healthily, growing and nurturing, but also about the importance of working together collectively to achieve positive outcomes.
Students took part in a series of workshops to design and build planters for flowers, fruit and vegetables. They also measured the spaces and performed risk assessments in order for them to actually build and install them.
