Kirup Primary School unveil Japanese inspired mural

A bright new edition to Kirup Primary School has been unveiled with work to produce a Japanese inspired mural completed. 

Education assistant Vicki Wood produced the artwork design which was then projected to scale on the wall of a basketball court where it could be painted by students, staff, parents and members of the community alike.

School manager of corporate services Sue Holden said the piece was started as a Harmony Day project and has received great feedback. 

“The school has been teaching Japanese for more than 10 years and we often have days at the school that celebrate and recognise Japanese culture and traditions as part of the student’s learning,” she said. 

“It was great to have the whole community come together to work on the project and it has definitely inspired the students to continue with their Japanese studies.”

Every year Harmony Day in Australia celebrates cultural diversity and coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
