Quick grant helps legacy

A hills primary school is sporting some colourful new artwork thanks to a Shire of Mundaring grant.

Sacred Heart Primary School was recently awarded a Quick Grant, valued at $500.

The grants are designed to help community groups with small projects such as training, equipment or those activities which benefit the community, up to $500.

Shire President David Lavell said the school created splashback artwork that will be enjoyed for years to come.

“Under the guidance of art teacher Mrs Alcock, the Year 6 students created some stunning paintings.”

“These were then collated, printed and installed on a wall between two acrylic sheets.

“The effect is very powerful and will be a great legacy by these students for others to enjoy.”

The artwork was installed in the undercover area in early June, organised by the school’s P&F Association.

“This is a fantastic example of how a small grant can go a long way to make our community such a great place.”

“We are proud to support local schools and a range of community groups through the grants program.”

The Quick Grants rounds run twice a year. For more information visit www.mundaring.wa.gov.au
