Grantlea Downs School Celebrates Diversity with Mural

Grantlea Downs School has joined with nine schools in New Zealand to celebrate the diversity of their student body through a student-led mural.

Teacher aide, Penni Naylor said, “the school community had 20 different nationalities and the mural was designed to express that while nestled in the stunning surrounding landscape of Timaru.”

A group of 11 pupils worked together to design the mural and then shared the painting responsibility by rotating one hour sessions.
