Owen's Marvellous Map - Social Services Unveiling
This week Owen from Class U8 and his proud Mum Vicky attended an unveiling of a new canvas he created! It was a map commissioned by his Social Work team for their offices reception area to give visitors, especially children something fascinating to look at. This will undoubtedly help calm and distract from difficult situations and waiting around.
His Social Worker Vicki said
"Owen is a very talented young man who has amazed us all with his art work. We were very grateful that he agreed to draw a map specifically for our reception in Goodman House in Harlow. The map was unveiled on the 1st December 2021 and this was attended by senior managers and many social workers as well as Owen himself and members of his family. His teachers and class friends attended via a live link. He was also presented with an Essex ‘Oscar’ for his outstanding artwork and a certificate of achievement. We hope the hundreds of visitors to Goodman House every year will enjoy seeing his map and Owen will feel very proud of what he has achieved."
Owen was presented with his Essex Oscar and certificate by with Michelle Hayden-Pepper who is the Director of Local Delivery for West Essex.
FOEBS, the SLG and his class mates joined in with the cheering and clapping and Owen was accompanied by his super proud family.
