Meet ‘Homer’ – Acle school names its construction-themed T.rex to thank Lovell

Share

Acle Academy has now completed its construction-themed mini Breakasaurus T.rex sculpture for this year’s GoGoDiscover Learning & Community Programme in partnership with Dipple & Conway Opticians, and named it ‘Homer’ in homage to Lovell, and the homes we build, as we donated the sculpture to them.

We visited the school to see the finished 3D T.rex, sculpture, which students designed and painted, with Homer having brickwork patterns, a hi-vis vest and traffic cone teeth.

Student, Reuben, aged 13, who helped paint the T.rex, said:

“I had so much fun painting Homer with my friends. My favourite part was the tail, as we all did that together! We also added a gold tooth on him too which people can spot among the traffic cone ones as a bit of fun. We all came up with names for it too and chose Homer because of the connection to Lovell Homes. I can’t wait to see him on show this summer in Norwich.”

Our Partnerships Director, Sasha Bainbridge, said: “Seeing what the students at Acle Academy have created, their creativity and all the fun they have had in the process, from designing to painting and naming it, is amazing. It has been an interactive project for them and they are all really proud and excited to get all their friends and family to see it on display this summer. Of course, this is all about raising awareness for Break too and the wonderful work they do in supporting young people living in care, on the edge of care and moving on from care in the region. We also are sponsoring a Steppe Mammoth for the main GoGoDiscover 2022 project and can’t wait to unveil it when the train begins.”

Break delivers GoGoDiscover in partnership with Wild in Art so that Break can continue providing their services to children and young people living in care, on the edge of care or leaving care across the region, the time and support they need to achieve their full potential.
