A huge mural honouring Australian native wildlife impacted by the recent bushfires has been unveiled at Cranbourne Primary School.

The mural stretching nearly six metres was created by about 350 students who worked “really hard” over three and a half weeks to finish the project.

Teacher Reagan Ryan said the mural coincided with World Wildlife Day which celebrated the theme of ‘Sustaining all life on Earth’ on 3 March.

“The sustainability team decided to create a mural that would raise awareness of our native Australian animals who have been so tragically affected by the recent fires,” Ms Reagan said, adding the school was proud of the students’ work.

“There was a lot of cutting out and stapling to do; it was a real team effort”.
