‘Sauce’ lends ex­tra to project

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

SNAKES and lad­ders is the new hit game at Coal­stoun Lakes School fol­low­ing a visit from artist Chris­tian “Sauce” Grif­fiths.

The Mur­willum­bah mu­ral artist used aerosols to cre­ate four mu­rals and the snakes and lad­ders con­crete floor game at the school this month.

School prin­ci­pal Ben­jamin Reed said Sauce was just the con­tem­po­rary artist needed to bring a fresh per­spec­tive to the school grounds, af­ter the school had re­vised its mis­sion.

“We’ve de­vel­oped our new four-year plan, re­fined and up­dated our vi­sion, pur­pose and val­ues,” Mr Reed said.

“The wel­come mu­ral shows our vi­sion, motto and pos­i­tive behaviour mes­sage: effective learn­ers are safe, re­spect­ful and re­spon­si­ble.”

Af­ter Sauce de­liv­ered a sten­cilling work­shop, a col­lab­o­ra­tive mu­ral was cre­ated on the side of an ameni­ties block.

Named the “an­other brick in the wall project”, the chil­dren wrote their names on a brick and Sauce con­trib­uted car­toon char­ac­ters.

“Kids could watch or par­tic­i­pate in the paint­ing, and there were struc­tured ob­ser­va­tion ex­er­cises too,” Mr Reed said.

Ad­di­tional works in­cluded a mu­ral fea­tur­ing the school’s 10 val­ues, “a fan­tas­tic bonus 3D mu­ral” and a painted ver­sion of the school logo on its assem­bly and per­for­mance stage.
