CHILDREN from primary schools across Swindon have come together at the start of term to celebrate the third annual White Horse Arts festival.
The event was launched at the Steam Museum on October 10 and was on display in the foyer throughout the last week.
The festival is an opportunity to showcase the hard work of all pupils from nursery age to Year 6, with a huge variety of pieces and artistic skills on display throughout the week.
The primary schools contributing to this year’s display for the White Horse federation included Croft Primary, Drove Primary, Mountford Manor Primary, Moredon Primary and Nursery, Rodbourne Cheney Primary, Tregoze Primary and Nyland Campus.
The event has been a great success, with children enjoying taking time out of the classroom to visit the halls of the Steam Museum and show off their work to passing visitors.
The event was scheduled to coincide with the Walk To School initiatives, when Swindon Council organised mass walks to schools around the town.
Liz Matthews, the community tutor at the White Horse Federation, said: “This year we themed the Arts Festival around travel to coincide with International Walk to School Month.”
