In a one day event, over 200 students from Saint Simon Peter Catholic Primary School contributed to the mosaic murals depicting their faction houses.
Students worked in groups of 6, for 15 minute periods mosaicing the tiles on the board for their faction. Each group had a representative from grades 1 to 6.
Blue - Prendiville - the logo is of Bishop Prendiville's shield, incorporating a gaelic football, an Irish Harp, The Southern Cross, Three Black Swans and the motto, da anima cetera tolle ('nothing else matters except the salvation of souls').
Green - MacKillop - the logo is Saint Mary MacKillop - incorporating an interlocking 'A' and 'M' for Ave Maria, A cross for 'Saint Mary of the Cross' and three J's representing Jesus, Joseph and Saint John the Baptist.
Yellow - Vincent - the logo is of Saint Vincent de Paul, incorporating three hands which bless, offer and receive the cup of Christ.
Red - Salvatorian - the logo is of the Salvatorians and represents Jesus who holds a book with the Alpha and Omega (beginning and end) symbols.
The end result looks amazing and everyone should be very proud of their hard work!
These pieces are due to be grouted soon and will be installed into the school's new 'sacred space' which will be opened very soon!
Coming soon is the Calendar for the October Kids Holiday Mosaics.
