PUPILS helped to create a mural display to brighten up a residential block of flats.

Pupils at Carlton Hill School have brightened up St.James’s House in High Street, Brighton, with their drawings.

The school ran a competition where children were asked to come up with their best Brighton themed art.

Local artist and resident of St James’s House, Amanda Thompson, chose pictures from 12-year-olds Niamh Hunter and Lou Deschamps to create the mural.

Louise Willard, headteacher at Carlton Hill School, said: “It was a really lovely way of the school working with the community and the children were absolutely thrilled to see their work on the wall.”

The mural was presented at St James's House and the residents association donated a £100 book token to the school as a thank you.
