Spire Murrayfield Hospital and Balgreen School join hands for 2010 calendar

November 2009

Spire Murrayfield Hospital invited children from Balgreen Primary's two P3 classes to submit drawings on the theme of staying fit and healthy throughout the year to illustrate their official calendar.

Given recent Government initiatives to promote health and wellbeing, part of the incentive behind the art initiative was to encourage children think about what it means to be fit and healthy and how they would represent this in artwork.

Drawings were chosen to represent a range of activities, from ice skating to rugby, and have been used to produce striking A4 and A5 format calendars for Spire Murrayfield Hospital for distribution to GPs and other health professionals throughout the Edinburgh area.

In addition, Spire produced and donated calendars to the school to sell for school funds.

Wally Bourdelov, Hospital Director at Spire Murrayfield Hospital said: “It has been an enjoyable and very worthwhile project for us. It has helped us to build links with the local community, as well as impart a message to younger children about what it means to be fit and healthy.”
