The Year 6 leavers at St Marie’s School, Sheffield have made their own Oscar Romero cross which was completed and displayed during the school’s Arts Week in July.

  It was designed in the style and colours of the internationally recognised Salvadorian artist, Fernando Llort, who designed the large Romero Cross that is in Southwark Cathedral, London.

  The class took inspiration from the different aspects that they felt made up St Marie’s School such as Jesus, football, Sports Day, CAFOD, Padley Pilgrimage, house groups and beads for behaviour.

  The children worked in small groups and painted these images onto different parts of the cross.
