Brighton municipality in good shape

By TONY FOSTER

Students show artistic skill for safer underpass

THE ongoing Safety Map work with students from East Derwent, Gagebrook, Herdsmans Cove and St Paul’s Primary Schools continues with the SRC students from East Derwent Primary School completing their first project.

The students identified the underpass next to their school as an unsafe area due to the rubbish, glass, graffiti, spiders, dirt, and lack of safety rails.

SRC students from East Derwent Primary School have completed their first project, painting the underpass near the school.  The mural provides the backdrop for a brighter, safer area for students to walk to school.
