SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday September 5 2017 13 Clearview pupils create mural to adorn school’s entranceway CLEARVIEW Primary pupils have created the school’s first mural. The mural features the house groups, including earth, air, water and fire, along with the Waimakariri River and Tane Mahuta, the school’s symbolic eye displayed in the middle. Teacher Adele Allport said the copper circles on the right of the mural have the school’s values imprinted on them – collaborate, climb, connect, care, create and curious. The mural was designed and painted by 130 pupils ranging from year 1 through to year 8. A small design team first started working on the mural with Mrs Allport about 12 months ago. The mural is 3.6m x 2.4m long and is on display at the front of the school. Mrs Allport said the school’s property manager Ricky Hoffmeister also played a large role in the construction of the mural’s 3D elements. The mural was created using a range of materials including rope, copper and steel. Mrs Allport said plans are already in the pipeline for the school’s next mural, which will also go on display at the entrance of the school.

The centre now has 15 to 20 families attending at its new building on Old Tai Tapu Rd. The Tai Tapu Playcentre opened at the beginning of term three after its old building sustained damaged in the September 4, 2010, and February 22, 2011, earthquakes. In spite of the old playcentre building needing demolition, it was not closed until last November. While the new building was built, it used the Prebbleton Playcentre and had shared sessions with the Lincoln Playcentre. President Alice Scoulding said many families have joined the new centre recently after seeing CRAFTY: Children having fun with the arts at the new Tai Tapu Playcentre. its beautiful new space. The rebuild was financed through the Canterbury Playcentre Association, Southern Region Capital Works and years of fundraising by the playcentre. •For more information on the playcentre, get in touch with taitapupc@gmail. com or go to the Tai Tapu Playcentre Facebook page.
