Local rainforests comes to Tyalla

THE WALLS of Tyalla Public School capture the natural beauty of the Coffs Coast from the beaches, its marine life and now the rainforest with the completion of the school's latest mural.

Artist Leigh Holmes was commissioned by the school to bring a slice of the rainforests of the Coffs Coast to Tyalla students.

A series of storms delayed the project, but the end result made it all worth it says Tyallah Public School principal, Stewart Copeland.

"It's a stunning result we're very pleased with it ... Tyalla is a very colourful place now ," he said.

The mural evokes the scenic Dangar Falls and features various local wildlife including a Great Egret and a sea eagle in the distance.

Mr Copeland said the school takes great pride in the local environment and aims to promote it in any way possible.

About three years ago, another local artist Ash Johnson came to the school adding to it's now colourful surround.

He added the community should keep an eye out for more stunning murals to come.

"Look out, where there's a blank wall, when we have the funds and the passion we'll certainly do another," Mr Copeland said.
