School children from across Buckinghamshire have been sharing and celebrating their creative work inspired by the Stoke Mandeville story and the Paralympic Games values in the lead-up to London 2012.

More than 350 pupils have been at Mandeville School in Aylesbury to showcase powerful creations of Driving Inspiration, a Creative Bucks project.

Working with Paralympians and disabled artists, nine schools in Buckinghamshire have produced an array of self portraits, posters, animations, creative displays, dance and music inspired by the Paralympic values.

Driving Inspiration brings together schools, Paralympians and disabled artists to create an artistic legacy of the Paralympics.
