Stu­dents leave mark with tiles

North West Telegraph - - News - Robert Dougherty

Hed­land’s pri­mary school stu­dents are mov­ing on to high school, but they will not be for­got­ten, with painted and named tiles left be­hind to dec­o­rate their class­rooms.

Eigh­teen St Ce­cilia’s Catholic Pri­mary School stu­dents, grad­u­at­ing from Year 6, have de­signed com­mem­o­ra­tive tiles to dec­o­rate their old class­rooms, start­ing a new school tra­di­tion in Port Hed­land. “Stu­dents were bring­ing in the brand new tra­di­tion and leav­ing their mark af­ter pri­mary school,” St Ce­cilia’s teacher Rachel Mullins said.

“De­signs re­flect their per­son­al­ity, with many fea­tur­ing gam­ing, danc­ing and quotes that ring true with them as they tran­si­tion to high school.”

The vi­brant tiles will be placed on the back wall of the Year 6 class­room early next year.
