Haere mai, come for a look at the temporary mural that leads to the office.

The students are close to finishing a beautiful mural that welcomes our school community.

It has been a wonderful learning journey, helped along the way by a few sessions from street artist Bruce Mahalski.

Lucy, Emma, Holly, Ava, Libby, Lil, Alice, Raisa, Ilsa, Leo, Angus, Archie, Phoebe, Mackenzie and Alex were the creative crew behind the mural. These students worked collaboratively to design the mural, which includes as many cultures from within the school as possible.

A big thank you to Otago Paint Solutions for supplying most of the paint. Bruce Mahalski for his tips of the trade and Room 2A for the muscles behind the painting – putting out and bringing in the benches and ladders each day.

A special thank you to Heidi Cleland who led this project and did some amazing teaching during the process!
