Painting Murals

The playground was a hive of activity on this gorgeous sunny day.  Ms. Connaughton has designed some beautiful murals and she enlisted the help of the children in First Class to assist her in painting them.  The designs around the football pitch are in keeping with our campaign to officially become an ‘Active School’.  The design on the basketball court is to illustrate that we are all ‘Global Citizens’ and that we can make the world better when we work together.  This is our ‘Green Schools’ theme for this year.  Well done to Ms. Connaughton and the children for their great work in brightening up our playground!
