Tees Valley Schools Linkup & Showcase Environmental Artworks

Seven Tees Valley schools that have recently taken part in the exciting and creative environmental engagement project Green TV (funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund) are pairing together, sharing their experiences and viewing each others art work.

There will be three separate events between 29th November and 2nd December where pupils from one school will be visiting another, telling their peers what they have learnt about a variety of important wildlife sites they visited and showing the art work they produced in response to that site.

During the events there will also be arts workshops with Green TV artists for pupils and parents and/or guardians to take part in and get creative!

Joe Dunne, Tees Valley Arts’ Heritage & Environment Officer and Green TV project coordinator commented “It is great to see pupils from the different boroughs of the Tees Valley meet each other and share their artistic achievements and experiences of exploring and learning about important wildlife sites in the area. The work these young people have produced is of exceptional quality and is something to be extremely proud of. It is also wonderful to see so many of them so excited and enthused about wildlife and the environment.”

The Schools taking part are Gurney Pease Primary (Darlington), Zetland Primary (Redcar), Rosebrook Primary (Stockton), Golden Flatts Primary (Hartlepool), Gillbrook College (Redcar & Cleveland), Macmillan Academy (Middlesbrough) and Bydales Specialist Technology College (Redcar & Cleveland).
