This project formed part of the celebration of Gomersal Primary Schools 100th year anniversary and also the pending move of the primary school up to the site of the middle school.
This was a brilliant project that involved the entire school. Over the course of two days, every child from every class from each and every year group was armed with a digital camera. With cameras in hand they were then asked to take photographs of the exterior buildings of both Gomersal Primary and Gomersal Middle School, paying specific consideration to aspects of structure, colour and building materials. Thanks to the efforts of the staff this logistical challenge during such tight time constraints went like clockwork. Not only that, it was a massive amount of fun. The children managed to take a whooping 4138 photographs.
There were then a series of workshops where the children came and discussed the photography and took part in the digital manipulation of the photographic imagery that they had produced. During this time their own ideas, personal stories about the school and the graphics that they created formed the idea for the banner graphic.
The ideas that solidified were:
Energy bursting out of the school
Something fun because school is fun.
Robot characters that represent the children.
Making building out of photographs.
Images that look busy.
A collage of the school made entirely from photographs.
