Mu­ral sends mes­sage

Fremantle Gazette - - OPINION -

BEELIER Pri­mary School has re-launched its ‘Stand Tall’ phi­los­o­phy with a school mu­ral painted by Year 4 and 5 stu­dents.

The school’s ‘Stand Tall’ phi­los­o­phy out­lines the be­hav­iours and virtues that stu­dents, staff and par­ents should ob­serve in­clud­ing ed­u­ca­tional ex­cel­lence, cit­i­zen­ship, em­pow­er­ment and spirit.

Curtin Univer­sity un­der­grad­u­ate and artist in res­i­dence Natalie Bird and Beelier PS vis­ual art spe­cial­ist Ch­eryl Han­cock helped stu­dents de­sign and paint the mu­ral in­spired by artist Romero Britto.

“Our pur­pose is to em­power stu­dents to reach their po­ten­tial and strive for aca­demic ex­cel­lence, to stand tall in the face of life’s chal­lenge, to suc­cess­fully con­trib­ute to so­ci­ety and to find pur­pose, mean­ing and hap­pi­ness in life,” Ms Han­cock said.
