School Children Display Artistic Flair For New Homes

17 January 2017

A team of talented Year 6 students from Chudleigh Knighton Primary School have been picked by Devonshire Homes to exhibit their artistic talents in a competition to win a prize and art supplies for their school.

Devonshire Homes took the group of school children for an exclusive tour of the house builder’s brand new show home in Bovey Tracey at its development named The Tors. Students were then challenged to display their artistic talents and draw a picture of the show home, which will then be judged by attendees to Devonshire Homes’ VIP event on 25th January.

The West Country housebuilder will announce the winner at their VIP event, and the lucky student will receive a £50 book voucher, a donation to the school for art supplies, and their picture will be proudly exhibited in the front of Complete Estate Agents’ window display in Bovey Tracey.

Jane Pearce, Sales and Marketing Director at Devonshire Homes commented:

“We were thrilled that the students of Chudleigh Knighton School have been so enthusiastic about the competition and we’d like to thank each and every one of them for the effort that has gone into their entries. We are really looking forward to seeing all the unique creations that the students came up with, and from what I have seen so far we’re going to have a hard time picking just one winner!”

Jane added:

“At Devonshire Homes we try to play an active role in the community whenever possible, so we are delighted to be engaging with the future generation and giving more art supplies to the school to encourage the children’s creativity.”

Students will be drawing the generous three bedroom ‘Marshall’ show home which offers a light and airy open plan kitchen/breakfast area, and a separate living/dining room and plenty of storage space. The detached property also features a spacious family bathroom, invaluable en-suite to the master bedroom, external garage, integrated appliances, lush green turfed garden and high specification interiors throughout.

Jackie Huntington, Head of Teaching and Learning at Chudleigh Knighton Primary School commented:

“As a school we are keen to take an interest in local community news and projects. The key stage two children who participated in these activities were highly enthused to be involved in the competition. The visit to the show home gave them insight about the property market and local new-build housing developments. In addition, the experience will be used as an opportunity to develop fundamental English, art and design technology curriculum skills back in the classroom. We would like to thank Complete for involving us in this exciting opportunity."
