We wanted our Snowdog to represent our school and the community of Southwick. Every child in school designed their own unique patch and our Family Art Group began layering and binding the pieces together to decorate and cover him. Similar to a traditional patchwork quilt, 'Patch' tells our story. He symbolises the individuality of each and every child - but also the cohesion of our school and its wider community.

Gentoo have sponsored this Snowdog.
