In a time where electronic media receives a lot of bad press, it is heart-warming to hear how it can connect families across the miles. Here’s a photo of one of our Year 6 pupils showing a very personal gift he received from his grandad, who lives in Syria. He asked Grandad, who is an avid and talented artist, to paint him a picture. Sadly, because of the distance, the two get together only very infrequently. This is where technology made things possible! He chose a picture online and emailed it to his Grandad. They discussed the image using social media and the rest, as they say, is history! The painting was hand-delivered by a relative when the family met up over the Easter holidays. He thoroughly enjoyed showing the masterpiece to his friends and sharing his story with us. Thanks to both!
