Green Week 2012

Students get creative

Students were heavily involved with creating a mosaic of Mo Farah out of recycled paper during Green Week.

Mo Farah is a fantastic role model for students here at Regent High School; although born in Somalia he grew up in West London and it was his PE teacher who soon spotted his exceptional talent. From there, he became the UK’s finest ever distance runner breaking several records, one of which was being the first British man to run sub 13 minutes for the 5000m beating the National Record time, only days after winning the silver medal in the 10,000m.

Following completion of the mosaic, we contacted Mo Farah to tell him about the project. He was delighted and privileged to hear the news and sent the students signed photographs as a thank you. He even requested we sent him a copy of the finished artwork.

Well done to all students for their hard work - they produced a stunning final piece which can be seen in the gallery below.
