New Outdoor Murals

Two elementary schools unveiled new murals before the end of the school year that are sure to warm the hearts of passers-by for many years to come.


In partnership with their PAC and the City of Burnaby, Suncrest Elementary has transformed their emergency kiosk into a work of art. Students, families, and members of the community were invited to participate in the 8-week project.

Principal Lori Driussi:

What a joy to paint outside with community members of all ages!”



Meanwhile at Confederation Park Elementary, students, staff, and parents created 10 painted panels with artist-in-residence Ann Thorsteinsson. The result is an eye-catching display on the exterior walls of the school for all to enjoy.

At the unveiling ceremony held at the end of the school year, Director of Instruction, Jeanette Laursoo:

The murals reflect the spirit of joy and sense of wonder of everyone at Confederation Park.”
