The grade 6 art students have the honor and pleasure to create history as they start their decorating work on 20 handmade wooden birds for the 50th anniversary of St. John’s. The beautiful birds are the creation of well-known local artist Yves Bosquet, who lives on champ de Roussart, right next to the school. The students went to Mr. Bosquet’s atelier yesterday to pick up the birds and have now started their work on the design of the decoration!
This beautiful work of art will consist of a total of 50 birds, one for each of the first 50 years of St. John’s, and are of different species from all around the world, symbolizing the internationalism of our school. The 50 birds will be hung from the high ceiling in the PAC foyer, on the window side and will be clearly visible from the street as well.
