Although the WGS84 meridian runs through the school site near its eastern boundary, this mosaic was created to celebrate the school’s proximity to the Airy Meridian. As such, it is located between the two, close to the site’s western boundary.
Working with artists from Art Express, children from the school researched the countries through which the Meridian passes and designed mosaics to represent them. The whole school visited an exhibition of the designs and chose the ones they would like to see in the playground. When it came to making the mosaics, parents joined the children on the project. The marking was built over when the school was extended in 2012.
