School repaint starts
by Julia Davidson - Friday, 30 September 2016, 2:29 PM

Work has started on the total repaint of the school. The base colours will be shades of grey but each block will be highlighted in the colour that is being used in our Wayfinding project so that there is consistency of colours and everyone can navigate the site more easily. The third image is the final look for the Library/Art block. The majority of the work will happen over the summer holidays.
