Gaskell pupils really are stars
NOW everyone will know that the children of Gaskell Primary School are real stars — after youngsters helped design the school’s new logo.
The school has unveiled it to celebrate its achievements which have transformed it into one of Bolton’s good schools.
Muminah Patel, aged 10, said: “I really love our new logo, it makes me feel very proud.
“Once all the children had handed their designs in to Miss Kirk we met as Pupil Council and chose our favourite bits from all of the different ideas.
“We then worked with Neil our designer to put all of our favourite bits together and design our brand new logo.
“We chose happy, smiley, colourful faces for our logo because at Gaskell, we are from all different places around the world, and we are all one big happy family — we smile a lot too.
“We wanted a rainbow to be included in the final design because a lot of children had included one in their design and we think our school is very bright and colourful.
“We chose stars to be part of the final design because we are all stars — we love learning and always try our very best.”
The logo now appears on the school’s website and will soon be emblaz-oned on pupils’ uniforms as well as school signs.
The school was marked as good with outsta-nding features before the holidays and it is in the top half of the published performance tables.
Headteacher Emily Kirk said: “We decided to redesign our school logo as we have been on such an incredible journey. We wanted a new logo that reflects our school as we are today and one that has been designed by our children.”
The design process started in the summer term with every children invited to submit a design to illustrate what the school meant to them.
Their ideas were then presented to the Pupil Council.
Miss Kirk said: “Each aspect of the new logo was then chosen by the children on our Pupil Council, who were very clear about what they wanted to include. I am absolutely delighted with it. It was so important to us all that our new logo was designed by our children and that it reflects our school as it is today. It means such a lot to us all and everyone is very proud.”
