Workers discover WWII murals during school demolition

The primary school to which the twins go is undergoing renovations. These started in August and, when they are finished, the school will have two new two-story wings. While the school will retain its 110 year old facade, some of the buildings — and parts of buildings — are being demolished. During this demolition, workers discovered parts of murals painted during the second world war.

The murals are currently being documented — photos are being taken and students are being sent to the consulate to try and find the soldiers who painted them. A search for the original photos has also been started.

Councillors are now trying to decide what to do with the murals, but the aim is to find a place for them in the renovated school.
