Seeing the eco light

An Eco Chandelier, made by pupils at John Paul II Primary in North Lanarkshire, will be switched on officially on September 1. Art link officer Bob Saunders says it is "absolutely fantastic" and an example of A Curriculum for Excellence at its best. The local authority's cultural co- ordinator commissioned a product design company called We Are Curious to work with pupils.
