Design Inspiration

Preston the Giraffe was created by Preston Street Primary School.

Their giraffe was designed by the whole school to give it a real sense of inclusion and diversity. They wanted to reflect the whole school community within their design so let the children from each class design a section. They have quite a few high needs and additional support children so this allowed all children to take part and work together. ‘Preston’ reflects a whole school design collaboration. The distinctive markings depict children’s class topics, the school panda theme and their passion for nature and outdoor learning. The ideas and images on their giraffe represent their diverse and inclusive school community.
