IMAGINATIVE youngsters at a St Helens primary school joined forces to create an enormous school banner.

Before they broke up for the summer holiday, all pupils at Holy Spirit Catholic Primary School were charged with creating their own nine-inch fabric squares.

The theme, Soaring to New Heights, inspired the Derbyshire Hill school’s youngsters to create depictions of hot air balloons, aeroplanes and fireworks – to name just a few.

The older children were able to sew patterns on their squares and the infant and nursery pupils used glitter to create their own fabric art.

Then, throughout the summer, school governor Cecilia Fletcher painstakingly patched each of the 250 squares together to create a magnificent 36ft school banner, which now takes pride of place in the school hall.
