Textbook Creative, the education division of WSA, received an unusual brief this month from Olney Infant School who are soon to become an academy.
Keen to get their pupils involved in creating a new identity to celebrate their upcoming progression to academy status, the best creative talent from the Year 2 group were invited to take part in something strangely familiar to the team at WSA. The creative pitch! Needless to say we were all impressed with their approach…
Steve Dunning, Headteacher said that “the entries were fantastic,” and with the local newspapers attending on decision day to get involved, it is a looking as though the School will be re-launching in the spotlight.
The change to academy is a big step, “We are entering one of the most exciting times of our school history,” said Mr Dunning. “We expect shortly to change status to an academy and that will bring enormous benefits to the school, together with the opportunity to share skills and experiences with other schools in a way we haven’t before.”
With the drawings currently being developed into the final school logo, both Eva Morebank (aged 7) and Amber Clarke (aged 6) can take pride in saying that their ideas will form the identity for the school. Jane Hayward and Sue Harding were pleased to present both of the girls with vouchers on behalf of WSA and Textbook for their excellent efforts.
Textbook will be working closely with the staff through the change and in providing support on design and marketing projects.
