Schools Beautiful - from the 30s

A fascinating project in the 1930s (Schools Beautiful) has left a number of schools with works of art which can still be seen today.  Prestonfield Primary has the 'Mother and child: the bath' a sculpture by Tom Whalen whilst the Cameron House Nursery Building has stained glass panels from the same period.

The occasion for drawing attention to this period of educational art is the opening to the public today in Wardie Primary School the vast mural depicting the tale of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland.

More information on the prestonfield Primary art can be found here.
