HISTORICAL FLOWERS: Howick Intermediate student Jacqueline Shelley shows the two flowers she painted, the African protea for South African students and the frangipani for those from the Cook Islands.

A new mural by students is brightening Howick Intermediate School.

A group of girls created the artwork which reflects the different cultural heritage of pupils at the school.

They wanted the new mural to continue on the theme of many cultures living harmoniously together.

But they decided to tackle the brief in a unique way by using flowers to represent the students' different cultures.

Teacher Sarah Richardson is proud they have created something which represents the school in such a creative way.

The mural can be seen from the corner of Pakuranga and Botany roads.
