“Last year we found an artist and began the process of designing the mural,” said Reel. “Through consultation with parents, students, staff and the mural artist, we came up with a design that connected positively to the community, its aboriginal history and to the amazing landscape.”

The artist, Dean Lauze, and his son Josh are from Mission.

Reel said they have both worked very hard to bring the mural to life.

“As part of the mural painting process, every South Park student had an opportunity to paint the mural,” said Reel. “Our parents, students and staff feel very proud of this legacy project that has connected our entire school community.”
