Students from Barriere Elementary School’s grade 6 and 7 art class have spent a good portion of time over the past few weeks working on their Beautifying Barriere Project.

The students chose the project, submitted their designs, voted on their favourites, and then have produced murals on plywood sheets that will be added to the existing two murals at the Barriere Outdoor Ice Rink. The work has been taking place on the road side of the Barriere Elementary School property fence, and has been garnering a lot of attention from passing motorists.

The total cost for the project is $550, and the students have been fundraising to reach that amount.  As of last week they have $200 which was donated from Elementary School’s Art For Others,  and they are still seeking assistance with the remaining $350.

If you might like to help them with the cost of this worthwhile project, please contact Jen Kerslake at 250- 672-5755.
