Central school wins mural comp


Nelson Central School pupils are celebrating after they won the Nelson Enviroschools Kereru Count ‘Design a Mural’ competition.

The competition, run by Enviroschools, tasked primary schools around the region with taking part in the Great Kereru Count and using the inspiration to design a mural that celebrates the Kereru and Nelson’s natural environment.

Nelson Central’s mural speaks of the connection to Wakatu and its surrounding environments, through the flora, fauna, memories and love for the region.

Student’s said they chose a range of native birds, trees and activities from across the region as that’s what makes Nelson special to them.
