Aotea Col­lege stu­dent Sophia Vito has helped brighten Wai­tan­girua Mall with an anti-bul­ly­ing mu­ral.

Miss Vito was one of about 20 stu­dents who took part in the pro­gramme, which saw them help­ing with com­mu­nity projects in­clud­ing clean­ing Tairangi Kinder­garten and the area be­hind Wai­tan­girua Mall.

Af­ter­wards Miss Vito was given the role of cre­at­ing the mu­ral be­cause she has an in­ter­est in art.
