The Big Draw at St Benedict�s

Published Tuesday 25th of October 2011 12:43:27 PM

The annual Big Draw event took over The Cloisters at St Benedict�s School, Ealing on Tuesday 4th October. In the morning Form Three were busy building and decorating a complete town. There was purpose among the bustle and a huge buzz of enthusiasm as new buildings were constructed out of card and then decorated.

A new Ealing Abbey, a leisure centre with an open air swimming pool, an exclusive shopping centre with a red carpet entrance for 12 shops, including a pet shop, a fashion shop and a Tesco store � these were just some of the buildings constructed. There was even a prison. As Sofia Romero-Waters explained, �We�re building a prison�we want to keep the community safe for everyone and keep the bad people away!�

In the afternoon children from Form Two in the Junior School added human figures to give a real-life look to the town. It looked wonderful!

Launched as a one-day event in 2000, The Big Draw is now an annual month-long festival of over one thousand events across the UK. Every October, museums, galleries, heritage sites, libraries, schools and parks join in � inviting people of all ages to discover how drawing can connect them with their surroundings and the wider community.
