Mural Unveiled at West Melton

11.04.2019

On Friday, March 29th West Melton School unveiled their new school mural, after a planning process that began at the beginning of 2018.

The School’s cultural committee met several times to discuss the vision for the mural which they wanted to convey the ‘essence’ of West Melton School. They also wanted to embed the School’s cultural narrative through the artistic piece.

The  mural was a student led- design and was painted by students for the School and community.

The cultural committee received numerous submissions and four with special merit were selected for presentation to the Board of Trustees. Daisy, Nash, Jasmine and Josh shared their ideas with the Board and a collaborative piece was created which included Josh’s logo, Daisy’s Pacifika weavings, Nash’s landscape and Jasmine’s striking circular artwork.

Many students throughout the School contributed to the mural.

It was a mammoth undertaking but it certainly makes a vibrant statement of who they are as a School and community.
