A team of eight Cambridge High School artists have brightened up the boards protecting the Stirling Sports shop frontage on Victoria Street.
The clever students ranging from Year 9 to 13 created a depiction of the Stirling Sports logo on a superhero shield “busting through the wall”, as their teacher in charge Zane Holton explained, “a reference to rising again after the ramraid”.
The store was ramraided on March 24, the fifth time since it opened in July 2016, leaving the shopfront boarded up for 10 weeks while new windows were made.
Having formed an art mural club at the school this year, which aims to contribute mural paintings to the community, it was a timely opportunity for the Cambridge High School students to contribute something to the store frontage.
The students involved in the painting project on Saturday morning included Jackson Tregurtha, Berengere LeMercier, Sophie Laurent, Phoebe Smith, Paige Connon, Orla Anderson-Scott, Ava Stretton and Josie Palmer.
The wooden boards are due to remain in place until early June.
