Eaton students revitalize spaces with mural project

The initiative gave students a sense of accomplishment and it was a lesson in collaboration, said a student

Hanna Swan, a Grade 11 student at Eaton School in Eatonia, explains the vision behind the hexagonal wall mural the school’s mentorship program students painted in a lobby at the school. The school’s Spartan logo was also painted beside the hexagons. The mural is part of several projects the students helped to create in the school.

High school students in Eatonia have been busy sprucing up areas in Eaton School by painting murals on walls and messages on stairs among other projects.

Eaton School has a mentorship program and students involved in the program came up with an idea to revitalize spaces in the school. A lobby between the gym and classrooms, a stairwell next to the lobby and a study room have all received some tender, loving care.

The school’s older students, along with Grade 1 and Grade 2 students, gathered in the gym for a presentation on Dec. 7 before the murals in the lobby were unveiled. Different students spoke about the projects as they were unveiled or presented one by one.
