Mural Paintings By Mrs Andrews | Thu 30th May 2019

Congratulations to the team of year 8 students who have worked with the artist Tina Rae-Carter on a mural on the water company boxes near to the school.
The project was set up by a local community group and Hutt city council as a pilot scheme which may be introduced to other schools in the area. The students have worked long hours over the past two weeks and were involved with the initial concept design last term.

The final murals look beautiful with images of the native birds and fish that would have been found in the wetlands of this area many years ago. Students have also depicted diatoms which are unicellular microalgae that play an important ecological role in preventing climate change processes, and also form a substantial basis of the marine food chain.

We hope the mural will be enjoyed for many years to come.

Chinese Painting Workshop By Mrs Andrews | Wed 6th Jun 2018

Thank you to Jane for coming in to show us how to paint using Chinese techniques. We learned how to hold our brushes and use ink to create a Chinese berry plant painting. This is an ancient art form which takes time and patience to perfect. The process felt quite relaxing and therapeutic as you have to carefully consider each movement you make with your brush. The resulting paintings are fantastic, they will be displayed in the corridor very soon.

Tapa Workshop By Mrs Andrews | Wed 16th Aug 2017

Olivia Small K2 and her Grandma Uoleva were kind enough to run a workshop showing how traditional Tongan tapa cloth is made and decorated. Olivia translated for her Grandma as she explained how bark is stripped from the tree then beaten into thin sheets. Uoleva showed us how to draw out the boarders and paint the designs onto the cloth. We all had a go at creating our own piece which will be displayed in the corridor along with some of Uoleva’s tapa’s which she has generously given to the school.
