The sad death of Nelson Mandela happened to coincide with the year 9 scheme of learning focusing on autobiographical writing and the class wanted to capture the life of this great man through writing poetry, stories and informative prose.
The artwork was developed with Lea Manor School Artist in Residence Kirsten Jones. The words, poems and phrases within the piece are extracts from students’ own written responses.
Every face tells a story, we hope you enjoy this tribute to Nelson Mandela.
The piece is now displayed in The dining hall at Lea Manor school.
