Lakeside School Project

In 2013 some members of CE were involved in the making of a tryptych quilt to mark the 50th anniversary of Lakeside School in Cardiff. They were:

Monica Dennis
Caroline Neudegg
Pam Stead
Hilary Carney
Isobelle Davis

The quilts were made over the school year with different year groups who made a panel for each decade that the school had been open.

Reception children created a panel of handprints

The top panel refelcted the school’s community involvement including the strong links it had with a school in Lesotho.

The middle panel was adorned witth dragonflies – which forms part of the school logo. The 50th anniversary logo was designed by a year 6 pupil.

The children learnt many skills on their journey to complete the quilt.

Designing, drawing, cutting out and sewing….

Thanks to the dedicated band of volunteers the quilt was completed in August 2013 and presented to the school in November of that year
