Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

KEW­DALE Pri­mary School par­ents got in­volved in an arts project to help beau­tify the school.

The project in­volved the par­ents paint­ing in­ter­ac­tive boards, which will be placed around the cam­pus in an ef­fort to bring some colour and fun.

Act­ing deputy prin­ci­pal Leigh Jones said the ses­sions were co-or­di­nated by The Song Room, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that runs mu­sic and art projects around Aus­tralia.

“We had the artist Char­lotte O’Shea help us out and the board rep­re­sent the dif­fer­ent parts of the school,” she said.

“We met up ev­ery Tues­day af­ter­noon for eight weeks, Char­lotte helped us come with the ideas and sketched them out on the boards be­fore we painted them and she came in with a pro­fes­sional touch.

Ms Jones said she came across The Song Room af­ter look­ing for a pro­gram to help par­ents get in­volved in the school. d461137

“All of the par­ents are ab­so­lutely pleased about what we’ve been able to do and they are pleased with the re­sults,” she said.

“We’ve ended up with four large boards, which will be placed around the school af­ter we un­veil them to the school on Novem­ber 17.”
