About the owl Vincent van Owl, our Owlet features the skyline of Widcombe, including St Matthew’s Church, with a magical twist. The design was inspired by the work of renowned artist, Vincent van Gogh and his painting, Starry Night. This is an artwork studied by pupils at The Paragon, particularly in Reception Class when the children study light and dark and in Year Two when they have been learning about Space. Not only is Vincent named after the painter, but also Monsieur Vincent Ramond, our French Teacher.
About the sponsor The Paragon is a forward-thinking, co-educational independent school for 3-11 year olds based in beautiful Bath, junior school to Prior Park College. We believe happy children learn best... and have the results to prove it!
About the artist “The Paragon has a strong affinity with owls as we are lucky enough to hear them in the school woods and we have some wonderful wooden sculptures on 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.”
