CAPE was contacted by a community artist, Jeff Goring, to do a community based mural project at the school, which was filmed by Shaw. Jeff has been responsible for running "MuralFest" in the Medicine Hat area for the last 3 years with the goal to create positive messages to encourage and uplift youth and the community as a whole.
Grades 4-9 were sent a survey to collect their choice of words to use on the mural. The chosen words (kind, accepting, diverse, inclusive, amazing, fun, welcoming, helpful, happy, challenging, caring, creative) were some of the words painted on the wall leading up to the mezzanine and down towards the gymnasium. Labour for this project was donated and the project was supported financially by the CAPE School council.
Students and staff have commented how uplifting and bold this statement is for our school.
