Solihull Pupils Olympic Art
School Children in Solihull have helped to turn a building site into an art gallery as they exhibit work inspired by the Olympics. Ten and elven year old pupils at Huslucks Green School in Shirley have been working on the paintings, which are hung on the holdings at the Parkgate site on the Stratford Road. Its hoped that when the site is finished in Spring 2014 it will create hundreds of retail jobs.
11 year old Ryan Johnston said, ''I'm really excited that I get to show my artwork in public.'' Charlie Durrant, also 11, added, ''It's great knowing that when people walk by it will remind them of events that have happened this year, like the Jubilee and the Olympics.''
Robert Birch, of Shirley Advance, said 'We are really pleased that the school came to us with this idea. It is important that youngsters understand how a big scheme like Parkgate is built and what's involved. This is a great way to start the relationship which will include school talks and site visits over the next eighteen months or so.'
