The shiny new ‘Owls in Transit’ van pulled up at the Paragon School to deliver their owlet, but before Chief Owl Wrangler Ian Wells had a chance take it to reception, Paragon pupils had taken ownership and carried owlet down to the playground to meet fellow pupils and their Owl and the Pussycat wood carvings.
Charlotte Thursz from The Paragon said: “We have a strong affinity with owls as we are lucky enough to hear them in the school woods and we have some wonderful wooden sculptures of owls in our playgrounds, so naturally, we jumped at the chance to support the Minerva Owls of Bath project and be one of the first to sign up to an owlet.”
The school is home to several wooden owl carvings and pupils are already planning their owlet’s design, which may have something to do with a famous Dutch artist…
The Paragon is a forward-thinking, co-educational independent school for 3-11 year olds based in beautiful Bath and is the junior school to Prior Park College. They say “We believe happy children learn best… and have the results to prove it!”
