Cat in the Hat is latest art to go on the wall
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.” www.communitypix.com.au d462609
Students from Padbury Primary and the community collaborated to paint yet another mural at the school.
