Aberhill Primary School has a brand new look thanks to the creativity of pupils, and hardwork of Take a Pride in Levenmouth (TAPIL), CLEAR, and community payback scheme.

There are now several murals depicting life in the area 100 years ago, all designed and produced by the pupils.

The community payback scheme cleared the area, painted walls and displayed the murals, while TAPIL, CLEAR and the eco committee - pupils Demi-Lee Moir, Christopher Adamson, Adam Allison and Sophie Robb - created beautiful planters to complement the new artwork.

The centre piece is the school badge and the surrounding murals include toys, music and industrial references commemorating the centenary of the school.

The project was run by TAPIL in partnership with Fife Council, with agreement from Mr Summers, owner of land at the entranceway, and funding from Levenmouth area committee, Balfour Melville Lodge and the CSV action earth grant.

Linda Anderson, headteacher, said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved for their hard work and support. The entranceway is transformed making it welcoming and attractive. We are all very proud of the result.’’

Ms Anderson thanked the payback scheme for an “excellent job”, and said the school had been very fortunate to have the guidance, advice and on-site work of CLEAR.

She added: “I would also like to thank Kenneth Whyte who worked with the children to produce the murals and Balfour Melville Lodge for all their fundraising efforts.”
