Artist In Schools

In June 2021, the school received a burst of colour and vibrancy. Local artist, Marie Connole, came to the school and helped the pupils paint an incredible mural on the front wall of our school yard.

In January and February the design process took place. All of the pupils brainstormed ideas and Marie came up with a number of potential designs. The pupils gave their feedback on these and the overall design was decided upon. It included elements of their hobbies and interests, historical elements of the community and images from the day-to-day lives of the pupils.

We are so thrilled with the outcome. It provides such a welcoming presence to the school and is the first topic of conversation for all who visit.
