We have received a number of lovely drawings and designs from the Kristin Junior School in Auckland, New Zealand.
“The students designed and painted their art during an after school art class, taught by Visual Art teacher Timea Willemse. They were given the brief and ideas were shared before starting their individual work. We are very pleased with their efforts and hope that you enjoy viewing them too!”

A huge thank you to Principal Diana Patchett for agreeing to take part, to all the students for their wonderful work and to Timea Willemse Visual Arts and Jane Sargeant Year 3 Teacher who assisted. The school logo of a stylised dove has been used to great effect in the children’s designs.
The flag of New Zealand consists of a dark blue base with a British Union Jack in the upper left quarter. On the right side of the flag are four, five-point red stars outlined in white. The stars are positioned to represent a southern cross.
