Birthday blog

Thanks to local artist Dan Byrd Maginnity who has completed and displayed the 90th Birthday mural on the Yerra building today. Dan’s creative idea was to use archival photographs to paint a story that represented education at Ainslie School over time. Our students worked with Dan on this project and Kate Chapma liaised.

You may recognise Kirsten from Year 3 (in 2018) who was photographed by Mel McDonald holding one of the Reid Preschool chickens in 2014 for our school website. She looks just as beautiful in paint!

Thanks to Dan, with support from the ANU School of Art.

To acknowledge Ainslie School's 90th birthday, two beautiful Art Deco planting urns and plinths have been installed in the front gardens.

The pansies and daisies are now in full bloom thanks to a lovely soaking of spring rain.
