Leisuretex Painting Contractors held the Breast Cancer Fundraising Paint ‘Sale’ in October 2014. The visual arts teacher at The Kooralbyn International School came along to donate to NBCF and take away some paint for her home. However, we all got to chatting and she mentioned her year 10 Visual Art class would soon be painting a mural for the Kooralbyn RSL. Our Operations Manager Chris & Supervisor Shannon, got onboard straight away and loaded Miss Millwood up with the paint they would need for the mural.
We received updates throughout the process, (which we all loved keeping up with) and were so excited to see the final product! Unfortunately due to the storms we were unable to make the official reveal, but a huge thanks to Miss Millwood for sending us a photo of the completed wall!
“Year 10 Visual Art have been busy this term [Term 4, 2014] generating designs to decorate the new Kooralbyn RSL. All students were commissioned to create a sizeable mural design that commemorated the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli, WWI and represented all military services and Australian service throughout the last century. Competition was tight, but Kahlia McClymont’s design was ultimately selected to be painted by the entire class. Year 10 Visual Art worked well as a team, to complete the mural to a commendable standard and have proven themselves to be accomplished artists. I look forward to the official mural reveal evening in week 10, where their family members and supporting staff can witness and celebrate their creative endeavours. “
“The Kooralbyn RSL and I are pleased to invite Leisuretex Painting Contractors to the official reveal of the new mural commemorating the 100th anniversary of Gallopoli. The entire mural was painted with paint kindly donated by Leisuretex Painting Contractors, for which we can not thank you enough. We are understanding of the difficulties attending due to distance, but hope to see you and your families at the small celebration. “
“Thank you for all your help Leisuretex Painting Contractors.
You were so generous. A company with real community spirit.”
