Today, Kayla and Vincent from Year 1 went to the official launch of the Little Herd at the Winter Gardens. At the launch, they saw our fantastic elephant on display and lots of other Little Herd Sculptures, as well as meeting Theo the bear from Sheffield Children's Hospital.
Our elephant was designed with the help of one of our parents and painter Nick Grindrod. It was inspired by the journeys many children in developing countries make every day to provide fresh water for their families; each child used their unique finger print to add a droplet to the pathways mapped over the elephant’s body.
This summer a herd of elephant sculptures will descend on Sheffield for the biggest public art event the city has ever seen! The Little Herd will go on display in indoor venues fromJune 21st – 30th September 2016. Don’t forget, the St Marie’s elephant is on display in the Winter Gardens. The Herd of Sheffield elephant trail is released into the city fromJuly 11th – 5th October 2016 ...are you ready for the stampede!
