Cat in the Hat is lat­est art to go on the wall

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

DR Seuss’ Cat in the Hat is the lat­est art­work to brighten up the grounds of Padbury Pri­mary School.

Par­ent and P&C mem­ber Sue Arkley said the li­brary mu­ral took two days and 13 hours to fin­ish.

This brings the num­ber of mu­rals in the school to eight, with more than 90 stu­dents, par­ents and teach­ers paint­ing over 80 hours to in­ject some colour into the build­ings.

Ms Arkley said the P&C had funded the project, which aimed to get the stu­dents and com­mu­nity work­ing to­gether to cre­ate col­lab­o­ra­tive art­works.

“It’s teaching the kids tol­er­ance of oth­ers, shar­ing and co-op­er­a­tion; it gives them a sense of pride in their school and de­ters van­dal­ism,” she said.

“They are learn­ing the im­por­tance of serv­ing the com­mu­nity and giv­ing back, whilst gain­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of paint­ing on a large scale and hav­ing fun.”­mu­ni­ d462609
