This colourful 6-panel mural was created by the Sherwood Park Elementary School students under the direction of local artist Meghan Leeburn. The aim of the community public art project was to bring together students, school staff, parents and neighbours in the creation of a, mural that would beautify the school grounds and surrounding area. Support for the project came through the District of North Vancouver's Community Public Art program along with contributions from local businesses, volunteer groups, and proceeds from recycling. At the unveiling of the mural in June 2013, Tsleil-Waututh students from the school blessed the mural with ceremonial cedar boughs and then joined their fellow students to perform a special song that they had composed to recognize this historic event.
