(Photograph) - Kim Robertson and Ben Green of St John's Primary school put themselves in the Gorbals of the 1940s in a photograph by Oscar Mazeroli which formed part of an exhibition last week at the Lighthouse centre for architecture and design. The show, called 'Stirring the City', launched a five-year scheme to ensure that artworks form part of the new redevelopment of the area. Schoolchildren were introduced to the artists in a series of workshops at The Lighthouse on Tuesday. The first informal project was Stephen Healey's Peter Pan which gave five- to 12-year-olds the ride of a lifetime in a helicopter trip over their homes. Schools will also work with former teacher Ted Scott, now head of a wild flower nursery, and help him to collect, plant and germinate seeds which will form part of a meadow on the banks of the Clyde
