The CCG and partners are in the process of developing Children’s and Maternity Health Hubs at Lowe House Health Centre and would like our primary school children to design artwork for the walls.
Lowe House Health Centre is currently undergoing works to remodel the existing space so that more health services can move into the building and care can be delivered to women and children in a community setting, away from hospital. This will result in improved integrated working across all teams and services, and a better experience for women, children, young people and their families.
The works will be finished at the end of May and we would like local primary school children to become involved in the project by designing some artwork brighten up the blank walls. The document attached explains how children, teachers and schools can become involved.
How can children get involved?
We want you to create a piece of artwork no bigger than A4. The theme is new life, health and wellbeing. Use whatever you like paints, pastels, acrylics, pens or pencil. And remember to make it as colourful as possible!
There are 3 age categories based on school year groups:
• Reception – Year 1
• Year 2 – Year 4
• Year 5 – Year 6
Send your artwork to us to arrive before the closing date of 31 March 2022 to:
Children and Families Community Hub: Artwork Competition
Health and Care Commissioning Hub
Forster House, Waterside
There is a winner and 3 runners up in each age category. Winners will receive a pair of tickets to watch a match at Saints RLFC and runners up will receive an art kit.
Please download the full details and entry form here which also contains further information for parents and teachers.
What are the children's and maternity hubs at Lowe House?
The maternity hub will incorporate freestanding midwifery-led unit which will have two birthing rooms.
The children's hub has seen a number of children’s clinics move into Lowe House, including consultant outpatient appointments and children’s phlebotomy which complements the service that is already operating from the building.
The hub project will be finished at the end of May and will mean lots more children visiting the building and babies being born there! This means would like our local primary school children to become involved in the project by designing some artwork which will brighten up the blank walls.
