Mosaic brings city sights together
ARTISTIC pupils gave up their own time to create this colourful mosaic for Headington’s Cheney School, above. Year 8 and 9 pupils met twice a week after school since January to create the four-panel mosaic.
It includes city sites – including the famous Headington shark life-sized model – and the school’s Latin motto “Think for yourself, act for others”. The panels will be put up in the school’s Lane building on Friday.
The project was part of the school’s East Oxford Community Classics Centre, which opened last October to educate pupils and the public about the classics.

AMELIA JOHN, above, has been flying the flag for China.
Her school, Larkmead in Abingdon, held a whole day of Chinese culture on Thursday.
Students got to try out Chinese percussion instruments, have a go at calligraphy and traditional wash painting on rice paper, and learnt typical ribbon, fan and handkerchief dances at the hands of experienced Chinese dancers.
Amelia, 12, said: “The Ribbon Dance workshop was great fun.
“The skills I learnt in this workshop will help me to develop my balance skills for my dance classes.”
Teenagers also got to try out Chinese cookery, origami and Chinese folk dance.
School spokeswoman Marilyn Pearce said: “The workshops encouraged students to feel, see, think and practice from a Chinese cultural perspective.”
