Student Chalks Rainbow to Thank NHS

This photo of St Bart’s student, Emily (12P5) and her younger brother, William, was viewed by more than 8700 people in less than 24 hrs and was one of the top stories of the day on the Newbury Weekly News’ website.

The siblings chalked a giant rainbow on their street. They wanted to do something to Say “Thank you” to the NHS and in particular the carers who have been visiting their neighbour twice a day throughout the pandemic.

Their father said that it was all their idea and, “it made us really proud of them as they worked together on this for at least 2 hours to get it right. All our neighbours loved it and I hope the key workers did as well.”
