A splash of colour.

Byline: Report by Jordan Reynolds

A colourful entrance to a school has been created after pupils and parents decorated stones.

Gorsemoor Primary School in Heath Hayes has created a unique entrance thanks to the Gorsemoor Rocks project.

Children, parents and teachers were invited to decorate stones over February half term as part of an optional community art project, the theme could be something they like or could reflect their individual personalities.

Hundreds of children and parents sent colourful painted stones back after half term and approximately 250 coloured stones are now in place and displayed around the entrance to the school. The project was initiated by Early Years Phase Leader, Nina Palmer, who said: "We were hoping to create a colourful and inviting welcome to our school and we have definitely achieved this.

"The stones have made such a difference to the entrance to the school and I am very grateful for everyone getting on board with the half term art project."

Cannock based Grayson Print & Design have donated a sign to compliment the stones.
