As students, teacher, parents, and members of both Bridgeland and Calgary came together and immersed themselves in this project, it became clear that the lasting impacts of this endeavour would far exceed the creation of an iconic artifact. At the heart of the experience was the meaningful realization of the power a common vision has to unite and inspire a school and its greater community to actively work towards the betterment of their shared environment.
In engaging with the mural, observing and reflecting on all its facets and intricacies, the voices of our students are resoundingly clear. Through the process of constructing the mural, it is evident our students have more than reimagined and envisioned a better world but, ultimately, have already begun creating it.
@elainemccrady is a Learning Leader at Langevin School who encourages you to explore the mural at our Beakerhead event on Friday from 1-4pm
