Weather shed transformed by indigenous mural
Pretty Beach Public School has had its weather shed transformed with art by a renowned indigenous artist.
Principal Ms Karen Wardlaw said the school community was delighted to welcome Mr Grant Molony to the school on November 18 and 19 to create a mural on the shed, with students watching the art take shape.
"One of the most exciting things we saw in Week 6 was the transformation of our weather shed into a colourful but calm and welcoming space," Ms Wardlaw said.
"Students watched with great interest and excitement as Grant commenced his rather magical transformation of our school space.
"Grant was impressed by the interest shown by our students and commented on their excellent manners and interested engagement.
"He was visited at each break, over Monday and Tuesday, by a group of students who sat themselves down and watched the process, without fail, for each play session over the two days.
"They loved talking to Grant about his progress, his colour choices and his art processes used.
"Upon the completion of this project, Grant stated that his visit to our school was 'a pleasure with such amazingly behaved students and a beautiful school'.
"We believe that our school is even more beautiful, thanks to the talent, time and energy expended by Grant," Ms Wardlaw said.
