Can we have a mural?

First we had to persuade Miss Whiting to let us to let us paint a mural. We all wrote her letters and had a meeting with her. Here are some of our letters.

We looked at the murals around the Waitangirua Mall.

Let’s paint a mural.
I think our school looks lifeless and boring and I want our school to be beautiful. I believe that our school will be incredible when we paint a mural. It will make me proud of our school and our families could be a part of it and help us paint.
We hope you say yes to a mural.

A mural would be great because other schools have murals on their fences and walls.
I believe that a mural would be good for Corinna School.
I think that our school can be beautiful if we paint on a fence or a wall.
By Manya

I’m begging you to say yes!!!
I think we should paint a mural because it can bring more kids to school every day and have 100% or more then 100% attendance.
I think we should paint a mural because it looks so boring without any colour.
I think we should paint a mural because it will look cool.
It will look fun but now it looks so UN fun and UN cool.
I believe that we should paint a mural because it looks so cool and awesome with all of the beautiful colours on the walls.
Finally we need beautiful colours so people can enjoy their day at school.

Can we paint a mural?
If we make a mural then our school would be more beautiful. Now it looks sad and plain. If we paint it, it will make us want to come to school and it will make us feel proud.

We need to paint our walls!!!!
I think we should paint a mural because our walls look blank. And our school looks sad and boring. Also we want our school to look beautiful and amazing. And it will make all the other schools jealous!

Corinna School’s Mural
We should paint our school so it doesn’t look boring and so our school looks nice and shining. It will make Miss Whiting and all of us proud of Corinna School. It will make me feel happy and nice.

Can we have a mural?!!
First of all I think we should have a mural so we can have something new to look at. Our walls are boring. We need them to be painted!
If you look at some other schools they have got murals.
A mural would look incredible and amazing and beautiful. When it is morning tea and lunch we will get to see the mural we painted.
We will be proud and happy about ourselves.
We can include our whanau and cultures in our painting.
We can find artists to help us with ideas for our mural.
We should make people smile. If we don’t some people will frown a lot. We need to turn people’s frowns upside down.
Our school will be proud.
I believe our school will look better and prettier than any other school in the world.

Our walls look sad because they don't have any paint on them. Our walls will look fabulous if we paint them. Other people will want to copy our school mural. I would include my whanau to come to school to paint a mural. It will make us feel happy and proud. Our families can be part of our mural and we could show our cultures in a mural. It would make us come to school. I believe that our school needs to be beautiful and happy and proud and incredible.

We need everyone to be proud and happy and amazing. If we don’t paint a mural it will be sad for everyone in Corinna School.
By Maylani

Miss Whiting can we paint a mural somewhere in the school? Please Miss Whiting! Because the school looks sad and boring and the mural will make it beautiful. It will make us want to go to school early every day too.

Painting a Mural
I think we should paint a mural because our school looks sad and uninteresting. I think we should paint a mural because it would make me want to go to school every day and because if we do paint it our school will look cool. I think we should paint a mural so it will make me feel happy and proud and if we paint a mural our school will feel like a cool, fantastic school.

And Miss Whiting said, "Yes!"
