OUR SCHOOLS By MICHELE ONG The essence of Orewa was captured in the first of a series by young artists. It is on the wall at the Hibiscus Coast Youth Centre. Our theme was to try and capture the essence of Orewa, mixed with some other Kiwiana, take them straight out of the landscape and place them on to the four wooden boards that would form the mural, one of the artists Sarsha Bailey, 12, says. The 10 young artists selec- ted for the youth centre mural were picked by Star Arts tutor Anna Evans. The group spent two days drawing and brainstorming ideas that represented Orewa and the multicultural place they live in. The designs were then drawn on a white- painted board. Hibiscus Coast Youth Centre s mural is the first of many murals Rodney- Hibiscus Coast residents can expect to see popping up around the district in this programme. Funding for the murals -- $600 worth of Resene vouchers -- was made avail- able through the Respect Rodney Eradication Project, launched by the former Rod- ney District Council in part- nership with the Justice Min- istry. Rodney College and Whangaparaoa Primary School are the other fund recipients so far. Schools and service providers working with young people are invited to apply for this funding oppor- tunity by December 3.
