Leverhulme Community Primary School, Bolton
New windows celebrate the opening of the new school
"School boy Kristian Fithergill , aged 10 , has had his design made into a stained glass window to celebrate the founding of his new school.
Levehulme School in Bolton opened its doors for the first time in september 2006 after two schools merged. Stained Glass Company Classical Glass Ltd stepped in with the offer to make a stained glass window to mark the opening of the new school and Maninging Director Andrew Seddon worked with the Head Teacher Mr Ashton, Class Teacher Mrs Draper and year 4 children to come up with the design ideas.
The design drawn by Kristian was chosen to be made into the stained glass for the front doors to the school. He was asked to unveil the window and said, "I am so happy that my design was chosen. The design shows a new start for the school."
Mrs Draper was very pleased with the result, "The children are all very proud that the window has been made as a result of their work. It gives them a great sense of ownership of the school."
