The artist also worked with the
children at the school to produce planters and a ceramic figure, which is
attached to the wall at the main entrance. Coralie
Turpin also worked on this project and made a ceramic brick relief
sculpture as well as two other pieces working with children at the school.
These are around the main entrance. Above the entrance are three
carved reliefs in stone which were made at the time the school was
built in 1951.
