The opening of Te Tuna o Cannons Creek.

The mural was designed by local tamariki from Glenview School, with help from local artist, Chris Barrand and Rachel Scott, the Education Partnerships Coordinator from Partners Porirua. The students have taken their inspiration and ideas from Patricia Grace’s book ‘Watercress Tuna and the Children of Champion Street’ written in the ‘80’s, which features the building of this mural.
