Pupils from Clydesdale primary schools have produced a lasting legacy of the 2011 International Children’s Games – designing four large tile murals which will be placed in four different Clydesdale locations.

Biggar, Blackwood, Lanark and Woodpark Primary Schools won a competition, run by South Lanarkshire Council, to design the mural, which would encapsulate the feelings that hosting the Games evoked for the children.

The lucky winners then worked with Biggar ceramic artist Stacey Roberts, who transformed the winning designs from A4 paper to a full scale mural.

The murals have now been installed in Biggar High School community wing, Lesmahagow High community wing and the Lifestyles Centres in both Carluke and Lanark for everyone to enjoy.
