Place Making Initiative: Mural

Elaine Lewis

Coolbinia Primary was awarded a Connecting Schools Grant, that we used for bike ed in Term 1 and a place making initiative in Term 2. The place making initiative is a Your Move mural overlooking our nature playground.

The aim of the mural is to promote Your Move. Our Year 4 classes are working Paula Hart, a visual artist, to create this mural. Paula has visited both Year 4 classes and conducted drawing workshops focusing on active transport. Here are some photos from those workshops:

The next phase of the mural creation is to paint the children's drawings onto the mural wall. This will commence next week. There is bubbling excitement about this initiative, so watch this space for news of the next creative phase!

Hi again Elaine. Thanks so much for sharing the inside story on Paula's art workshop leading up the mural project - it is the first time I have seen a story on this so it is a great insight. You have earned another 10 points for sharing these extra details of how your Connecting Schools funded rewards are coming along.
