Over 1,000 creative entries, inspired by the brief #IFeelBetterWhen, were submitted by pupils from the 5 schools on World Mental Health Day. From these, 3 pieces from each class were selected to be displayed online and along #TheYellowBookRoad! The Yellow Book Road Gallery launched for #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek and showcased all of the shortlisted pieces in 15 shop windows along Bell Street, Knight Street & Church Street in Sawbridgeworth.
Next, the assessment team had the challenging job of selecting 50 pieces, 10 from each school from all the amazing entries to be published in The Sawbridgeworth Primary School Yellow Book. A further piece from each school was also selected to become the cover art to their schools version of The Audio Yellow Book.
