A triangle-themed artwork designed by a Year 8 student will soon take pride of place at the new community fire station at Theale.
Last year Art students in Year 8 and Year 11 at Theale Green School took part in a competition to produce artwork for the new station, where they were set the challenge to design a graphic which could be applied to the wall of the lobby area of the building. Over 40 pieces of artwork were submitted by students across both year groups, and the quality of all the artwork was very high, meaning that selecting the winner was a very difficult decision to make.
A panel comprised of representatives from the fire station and the fire authority met in December to agree a winner. Year 8’s Evan Rose was selected as the winner of this competition. Evan will now be working with a professional designers from Apple Print and Creative to bring their artwork to life at the new station.
“Evan’s work was chosen because it had a modern look and feel to it, with a great use of colour, shading and shapes. We especially liked the use of triangles as we felt it showcased the tri-service nature of the new station, with police, fire and ambulance staff represented. We were very impressed by the quality of all the work and this was a difficult decision. However we hope you will all be able to come and visit the station in the future and see the finished artwork in place.” Mark, Watch Manager at Theale Green Community Fire Station.
The artwork will be unveiled for the official opening of Theale Community Fire Station, which is being planned later this year.

Congratulations to all our students and well done Evan.
