#53 school murals

053/365 school murals, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

On Monday, we got the first glimpses of our partner school in Singapore. I fell in love with the new colour world straight away.

Our partner school, Pioneer Secondary, pays special attention to promoting students’ ownership of the school building. This is done, for example, by involving students in decorating the school, and having their creative artwork on display all around the building.

This mural painted by the students is on one of the walls around the main yard. It beautifully depicts some of the local flowers that we also had the chance to see live. The biggest one is the orchid, the national flower of Singapore.

    I love the idea of giving ownership to the students. Then it is really their school.

    I totally agree. Gives me a lot of ideas for our school, although I’m afraid this might be considered too unconservative for the Finnish setting…
