Eyemouth high School pupils have teamed up with schoolchildren from the surrounding Primary Schools to create an impressive 80 foot long mural that was unveiled this week.

The photo above shows art teacher Victoria Lowe, along with budding muralists Fabiana Duarte, Devon Todd, and Anne Bender, holding just one panel of the Eyemouth High School community project.

In all, 75 pupils from across the six local schools involved in the painting of the mural itself over te last six weeks, with another 300 others, including staff, contributing to the overall design. Art teacher Vicoria Lowe said: “Together they have created a highly original and colourful representation of the East Berwickshire community which will be used to transform an otherwise plain wooden fence in the High School grounds.”
