Heritage Elementary Students in Grades 5, 5-6, and 6 proudly unveiled a new mural painted on the wall outside the school’s N.E.S.T. (Nurturing Each Student Today) room in February. The mural features several different animals and their nests, as well as a rural landscape with a river running through the background. It was designed and painted by the students with the guidance of professional artist Adele Reeves, who was able to participate in the project through an ArtistsInspire grant in collaboration with the English Language Arts Network (ELAN). A final touch was added to the mural quite literally by kindergarten and Grade 1 and 2 students, whose handprints represent leaves on the trees in the colourful landscape.
