West Lodge Primary School Diamond Jubilee

To celebrate West Lodge Primary School’s 60th birthday each member of the school community decorated a diamond. Its most famous ex-pupil, Michael Rosen, (who joined the school when it opened) also did one: a portrait of Trev the Tramp, who features in his poem The Homework Book which is a story from when he was at West Lodge. You can see a video of him reciting the poem here on YouTube.

It was thought that the diamonds would be a short term installation, but they are still brightly introducing visitors to the school 6 years later.
