Schools

Pupils from 21 Jersey schools and colleges have taken part in our Creative Learning Programme this year. 27 small gorilla sculptures decorated by students of all ages form part of the ‘young’ gorilla trail, displayed in secure and accessible indoor locations across the Island, complementing the larger, artist-imagined Go Wild Gorillas sculptures.

When the trail ends, these sculptures will appear at the ‘Goodbye Gorillas’ at Jersey Zoo from 1-4th November alongside the 40 life-size gorillas and other young gorillas designed by community groups and artists. They will then return to their school or college as a lasting legacy.

Thank you to our troop of schools taking part in our Learning Programme.
