BUDDING Peterborough School artists had a chance to share their skills after a year-long project came to fruition recently when three stunning murals were unveiled.
Using a NSW Department of Education grant, five children took on the task with great enthusiasm.
Teachers Nancy Urban and Anne Collins co-ordinated their efforts.
"We decided on an Aboriginal theme, with one mural depicting the ocean, another the escarpment and the third the city and we couldn't be happier with the results," Ms Urban said.
"There are raised footprints and handprints, which gives a 3D effect, that have been individually painted and placed, with one of each coming from all 12 classes in the school.
"It has been a whole-school effort and I am sure that every student at Peterborough is proud of the effort."
As well as the murals, the school also has new mosaic flags at the front of the school to further enhance the overall look of the school.
Harley Walsh, in year 10, recently won third place with a framed artwork that was placed at the Sydney Museum in an event sponsored by the Reconciliation Council of NSW.
The public will have an opportunity to purchase some of the Peterborough students' work on Thursday, November 14, when they sell items at Westfield Warrawong.
All proceeds will go to Pound Rounds, an organisation that helps dogs and cats stranded in pounds, particularly Blacktown and Hawkesbury pounds, which have the highest "kill" rates in the state.
