Centenary of ANZACPrint Page Print this page

The mural commemorates the centenary of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landings at Gallipoli in Turkey in April 1915 during World War One.   

The Centenary also commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts after World War One in which Australia has been involved.

The mural is a tribute to the ANZACs and has incorporated bright colours through 3D elements and mixed materials.  There were eight students who were the main contributors to the design aspect but every student in year six and seven played a part in making the mural come to fruition.

Harder elements of the design process included the creation of the poppies which were made with cheese cloth and water putty that were made to withstand the weather and school yard play. The poppies have been used as a main focal point that has given the mural a 3D element.
