Art teacher Lee Cox said students from years 3 to 6 and last year�s Year 7 students had been involved

�I wanted all the students from year 3 to 6 to have a hands-on part in the wall,� she said.

�It�s more of a peace wall; it�s heavily loaded in symbolism.�

Miss Cox said the tiles included images of olive branches, kangaroo paw flowers, wattles and silver ferns.

�We did it in the first two weeks of school this year,� she said.

�All the younger students made symbols of peace.

�I did have some Year 7 students make the doves last year.�

Miss Cox said about 400 tiles and larger pieces would be installed on a limestone wall near the administration block and be unveiled during an Anzac service on April 24.

�We are also planting the centenary rose and two Anzac roses, and poppies to come up in spring,� she said.
