Community Involvement in Every Way!

On the 30th November 2015, in front of representatives of local Parliament, football associations, participating organisation representatives, Elders and community members, the Community Mural was officially unveiled and opened at Ziem's Park Corrimal. Around 20-30 students worked on the project from both Corrimal High School and Woonona High School under the exemplary guidance of local Indigenous Artist Zac Bennett-Brook.

 

The collaborative piece demonstrates the importance of a continued link to, and the sharing and recognition of, community and culture. Our local community is rich in diversity but often we do not get to learn about that diversity or share and impart knowledge about our own cultural background. This project was a way for some of our local Aboriginal students to work on a mural that links not only to their current community – the Corrimal Cougars and sport in general – but also to learning about some of the meanings of shape and design understood by the traditional custodians of this land. Corrimal High School wishes to thank all those involved in making this project a success.
