Lions Clubs from across the county have helped to pay for a new kiln at St Mary’s School.
On Friday (March 1) representatives from Lions Clubs in Bexhill, Hastings, Rye, Hailsham, Battle, Uckfield and Eastbourne will gather at the school in Wrestwood Road to join the children and art teacher Margaret Amey on the first firing of their new kiln.
The separate Lions Clubs all made donations which paid for the cost of the power supply towards the kiln.
The new facility will allow the children and young people with speech, language and communication disabilities to enjoy pottery and clay work.
Mrs Amey, who is deputy headteacher and the art teacher responsible for the kiln ,said : “Art and Design is a key part of education at St Mary’s, and pottery is an exciting and vibrant means of self-expression for those who struggle to communicate verbally.
“The new kiln will enable our children and young people to enjoy learning a new skill as part of the curriculum in both school and college.
“We are incredibly grateful to the Lions Clubs for making this possible.”
