Key worker children paint a rainbow for NHS

A colourful, permanent reminder of the contribution of the NHS during the Coronavirus crisis has been created at a Graham School.

The ‘Rainbow Wall’ has been painted by children of key workers who have been attending school throughout lockdown. The students were keen to produce a permanent reflection of the immense efforts of the NHS, and appreciation for their own key worker parents.

The students painted the rainbow wall with the support of their teachers, including Executive Lead at Graham School, Mrs Helen Dowds, who created the design.

The rainbow wall, which sports a thank you to the NHS as well as the school’s values, can be seen at the entrance to the school.

Ms Emma Robins, Principal of Graham School said “I am immensely proud of our Rainbow Wall and the hard work undertaken to create it. We are delighted to have a permanent memory of the great work undertaken by the NHS during the pandemic, as well as a reminder of our school values – Honesty, Empathy, Aspiration, Resilience and Teamwork. The rainbow also reflects our school motto of ‘Grow, Learn and Achieve Together,’ which we have certainly done throughout the pandemic. Huge thanks to all of the students who worked on the wall. They all enjoyed the project and were a great team!”

One of the students, Tilly Dixon in Year 8 said of the project: “I know the rainbow is for the NHS, but I love seeing it every morning. If you’re having a bit of a bad day, it cheers you up as you arrive in school and you know it’s always there. Lockdown school has been great; the teachers have been lovely. I’ve loved coming in and seeing everyone’s smiling faces. It’s just lovely!”

The Rainbow Wall has been unveiled just days before the National Clap for Carers Day on Sunday 5 July, which marks the 72nd birthday of the NHS.

Graham School is part of the Hope Learning Trust, alongside fellow Scarborough school, George Pindar, and eight other primary and secondary schools across North Yorkshire.
