Pupils at Fulfen Primary School in Staffordshire have created a collaborative display on British values thanks to a donation of Libra board from Antalis and cutting services from Zund.
Each of the 70 jigsaw-shaped pieces of Libra board supplied were to be decorated by to illustrate British values in school and the community, such as inclusion, caring, lifelong learning, aspiration and tolerance.
On hearing that the school intended to cut out each of the jigsaw shapes themselves, Antalis contacted its partner Zund who were delighted to get involved. Using leading technology in their St Albans showroom, Zund cut all 70 tessellating pieces for the school.
Joanne Ashcroft, the teacher at Fulfen Primary School who first got in touch with Antalis to see if they would be able to supply any materials cost-free, was thrilled with the support she received from Antalis and Zund.
She said, “We really appreciated Antalis’ support and the generosity you showed Fulfen; it has made such a difference to the work we could produce.
“All the children involved in the project are delighted with what they have been able to create with the pieces. We have now pieced the boards together to create an interlocking display of the children’s illustrations of the values.”
Katie Farr, Strategic Marketing Manager of Antalis added, “when the school contacted us, we were only too pleased to help. Libra board was the ideal product because as well as being high white to perfectly show off the children’s illustrations and collages, it is also fully recyclable and biodegradable.”
