Sculpture Description

Our design was inspired by making Elmer one of our pupils! The pupils in our school love Elmer books, and wanted to make Elmer one of their own. The design idea is based on the original Elmer as a Woodlea pupil. This means on his return, we’ll be proud to have him as one of the Woodlea family! His name, ‘Kiburi’, is Swahili for our school motto ‘proud’.
