School’s Lego logo

A DOWNEND infant school has created a giant version of its logo using thousands of pieces of Lego.

The project at Christ Church C of E Infant School was the idea of parent Luke Beadle, a member of Bristol Lego group GertLUG, who worked with the school’s friends group to make sure every child had a chance to help make it.

Luke then organised a Lego brick show, with displays by local Lego ‘engineers’ and activities for families from Christ Church and other schools.

The event raised £1,668 towards outdoor learning resources for the school. 

Head teacher Anna Martin said: “We are so lucky to have Luke and the incredible groups of parents who work tirelessly for the Friends to raise money for our school.

“Time and time again they manage to find creative ways for the children and their families to have fun whilst raising money.

“Luke is so generous with his time and commitment to our school, and he loves seeing the progress that the children make over time with their Lego builds.

“We can’t wait to proudly display our huge Lego logo in the entrance of the school and for each child to be able to see how they contributed to a Lego legacy!”
