A Mural for all Movers & Shakers!

Elaine Lewis

Coolbinia Primary has completed a Place-Making Mural Initiative, as part of our Connecting Schools Grant. As you can see from the photos it looks sensational! Overlooking our adventure playground, the mural will promote Your Move for many years to come!

Paula Hart, visual artist, worked with all our Year 4 Your Move classes to design and paint the mural. The five-week process to create the mural may be summarised in four phases: 1. Designing phase: Students created drawings of children being active coming to school. 2. Transferring phase: Selected student drawings copied onto the mural wall. 3. Painting phase: Working in small groups, all the Year 4 students painted the mural. 4. Celebration phase: Department of Transport, school newsletter and website publicity about the mural.

Congratulations and thanks to all the movers and shakers who contributed to the creation of this stunning YM mural!
