A LOCAL 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," he said.
"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," Cr Lavell said.
"We are proud to support local schools and a range of community groups through the Grants Program."
The Shire's Quick Grants rounds run twice a year. For more information visit www.mundaring.wa.gov.au or call Tracey on 9290 6678.
