What You Say About Ricky Grimes

Some comments from head teachers, teachers and governers of the schools I work with:

“The totem poles are fantastic. I look out the window and can see all the amazing work Ricky has done with the children.”
Marriane Matheson, Teacher, Torriano Junior School, Camden NW1

“The children really look forward to the days when Ricky is in their class”
Caroline Karkoutli, Deputy Head, Brookfields Primary School, Camden NW1

“Thanks to Ricky our once barren looking playground has been transformed into a bright open space adorned with nine stunning mosaics, African masks and two totem poles. Ricky has done workshops at Torriano, over a period, for many years. Each time he has engaged and enthused the pupils,class teachers and the whole school in exciting, stimulating and often challenging projects. He forms very good relationships with both children and adults and they look forward to working with him”
Dilys Brotia, Head Teacher, Torriano Junior School, Camden

“Ricky worked with all the children at Chesterfield School to produce some stunning pieces of ceramic work ranging from a compilation of nursery and reception children’s hands in welcome, years 1 -4 making tiles to represent who they were and where they came from, year 5 making totem poles and year 6 making a jungle scene for the early years children and some stunning figures of heads.
The whole collaboration was well managed, enjoyed by the children and has produced some stunning ceramic work which has added a lot to the school environment and which will be remembered by the children for a long time to come.”
Jenny Jones, Head Teacher, Chesterfield School, Enfield

Last week, myself and some other Governors of Tottenhall School saw the ceramic mural that you had prepared for the school. We thought that it was excellent!
Many thanks for all the work that you put into it. I shall take some photographs of it to show to friends and to another school.
Stephen Londesborough Governor.
