This mural represents the school’s cultural diversity and the idea of migration, not to this country, but the journey to this school.
Background to mural creation:
The mural was created so every child’s culture from within the school would be recognised and celebrated. All 386 children placed their handprint in the section allocated to the culture they identified with. They were so excited and proud of their different cultures. E.g. The red section = children of the Pacific Islands. The handprints were built up using various tones of colour.
A group of students gave up their lunchtimes to design and paint the seagulls. They designed an image to go within the seagull shape of their culture.
