Teenagers from a Bromley school have taken out their brushes and put on their aprons to help bring a nursery back to life.

Nine BTEC Art students from Ravensbourne Secondary School got together for a community project to design and paint a mural on an outside wall at Mrs Bond's Village Nursery in St Mary Cray on Friday May 9. 

The nursery's Kelly Booker said the colourful piece is a "big hit with the staff, children, and parents" and said the hard work has make the garden a more "bright and stimulating place for all".

The year 12 students said collectively: "This project has been a fantastic opportunity and experience for us to develop our skills.

"Our confidence has grown and we have really enjoyed working to a live brief. We are pleased with the end result and that the mural has enriched the children’s play area."

Art teacher Fiona Guessous added: "I am very proud of the student’s hard work and what they have achieved, they have produced an outstanding mural. It has been a privilege supporting them on this project."
