The desire to promote our schools ethos of community spirit and cohesion across primary, secondary and 6th Form was behind our Swinpup. We wanted every pupil and member of staff to be part of our design to mirror the community spirit of The Big Dog Art Trail. We felt as a special needs school that is was important for every member of our school community to take part in this important creative task. After research on prior art trails, we decided that as our school goes from primary through to 6th Form, our design needed to be accessible to all pupils equally. After canvasing for ideas the most popular choice was to use everyone’s fingerprints.
After the trail finishes the Swindogs will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Julia’s House, your local children’s hospice charity. If you have sponsored a uniquely designed and decorated big balloon dog sculpture this will be your chance to adopt your Swindog. Then it can go to its forever home where it can be enjoyed for many years to come!Find out more
