The whole school was so excited when the Sandown Rubber Duckling flew in to meet us. The children couldn’t wait to get involved by entering the ‘Design a Duck’ competition. The designs needed to reflect the wonderful local and school environment and be bright, creative and eye catching. The School Governors had a tricky decision choosing the winning designs and deciding who would receive their very own rubber duckling to take home with them.
The best elements from all the designs were combined onto the final sculpture. The children took great care when painting and decorating the sculpture, staying within the lines and selecting the correct colours. The children wanted to illustrate just how caring and united the Sandown Community is. We hope that our Sandown Duckling reflects our school ethos ‘The best that we can be!’.
