A COLOURFUL new mural has popped up on a Samson bus stop thanks to the artistic work of Seton Catholic College students.

Marking the third time the school has been involved in transforming a local bus shelter, the community project gave 12 students the chance to learn design skills, spray painting techniques and the tricks of the trade from artist Dan Duggan over five weeks.

The finished product was painted on the bus shelter late last week.

Seton art teacher Lorraine Francis said it was a great project that brought the school and local councils closer together.

“It is vital for the students to be involved in community projects like this because it makes them build strong relationships within the community and feel proud of these links and being a part of the local community,” she said.

“Seton students, staff and parents are strong supporters of our community and find opportunities like this to be uplifting, rewarding and positive.”
