  • Our new Mural

    Published 21/04/23

    This week we had the amazing Rebecca Vaughan, who is a Deaf Artist, in school to create a mural in our well-being room. 

    Our learners were asked what images, colours and phrases would be most helpful to create a calm, relaxing and safe environment.  

    Rebecca spent four days working really hard to transform the plain white wall into an amazing, immersive space for our young people to use when they are feeling overwhelmed.

    We thank Rebecca, who was inspired to explore her artistic talents because of struggles with her own mental health, for creating such a beautiful, calming atmosphere for everyone at Braidwood School to enjoy.

    Thank you
