The children at Shottermill Junior School were delighted to be asked to design and paint a hen for Haslemere Hens 2022.
It was decided by our Arts Council that the design process should be set as a competition. With over 70 designs submitted by the children of SJS, these were then narrowed down to the Top 20. Voting was undertaken by the whole school and DolpHen was the unanimous winner.
Designed by Daniel Brewer in Year 6. He based his design on his love of the ocean and dolphins; he also considered a design he felt the children could recreate themselves.
DolpHen was painted by Daniel and the members of the Arts Council during their lunch breaks. This was a collaborative pupil lead project that the children rightly feel very proud of.er an introduction for your news story here.
