Cultural recognition and appreciation were represented in colourful fashion at Oxley Vale Public School yesterday.

Students were eager to get their hands dirty for the sake of fine art and assisted local artist Corey Strong in painting a mural on one of the building walls. The mural itself will represent the rich indigenous background that the school holds in pride.

Local elder Neville Sampson was on hand to talk to the children about the meaning of the painting and also to liaise with Corey on the technicalities of Aboriginal art.

Aboriginal education tutor and organiser of the artwork, Sharon Farrell, told The Leader that it was a great day.
