Hillhead Primary School Creates Unique 2015 Calendar
23rd December 2014
Primary 7 pupils at Hillhead Primary School have created Christmas cards and calendars with a very special Wick connection. The primary 7 class have taken hundreds of photographs of signs around Wick. They have photographed shop signs, business signs and plaques. The photographs were then cropped to make letters which they have used to create calendars and Christmas cards. The cards and calendars both make a very interesting item for anyone with connections to Wick as it is an intriguing puzzle as to where the letters come from. For those who get stuck there are the correct answers on each item.
The calendars are large A3 sized wall calendars, printed in full colour on good quality paper. There is a strictly limited edition of 150 calendars and each one is individually numbered. They are a very unique collection of images. Calendars are priced at £6.50 each and are available through the school or at the Keystores in Glamis Road and Bridge Street Wick.
The Answers for Merry Christmas!
