WEB - Parc Hendrwana - Hoarding Painting

Creative children from a primary school in Perranporth, Cornwall, have been challenged to transform building site hoardings into eye-catching works of art as part of a national competition.

Pupils aged four to 11 at Perranporth Community Primary School have been working with our Exeter team to brighten up the perimeter hoardings surrounding our Parc Hendrawna development in the town.

Their handiwork – which has a beach theme in keeping with Perranporth’s coastal location – will be submitted into the ‘Ivor Goodsite’ art contest, organised by the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Parc Hendrawna Site Manager Adam Bishop, who has been working with the youngsters to create the competition entry, says: “We’re always keen to strengthen our links with the local community, and with Perranporth Community Primary School being right next door to our development, entering the Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition seemed like too good an opportunity to miss!

“It’s a great chance for the children to put their artistic talents to the test and, with any luck, win some fantastic prizes for the school. By working together, we have also been able to educate the youngsters about the importance of staying safe near building sites.”

Alistair Johnson, Headteacher at Perranporth Community Primary School, adds: “Children from across the school have been busy planning, designing and painting their entry for the competition. They have enjoyed this opportunity to show off their creative talents and are excited about the prospect of seeing their finished piece.

There’s a choice of four and six-bedroom homes currently available at Parc Hendrwana.
