School Murals

PBC Murri Murals

The Indigenous team at PBC is very excited to have the first PBC Murri Murals in both the Middle and Senior School areas. Luther Core of the Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers designed the murals and was assisted by Jay Thompson (a past PBC student) and several Middle School indigenous students with the painting of the murals. It is important our PBC community shares the cultural understanding of our traditional owners in the Currumbin area.​

The two murals have different themes. The B Block mural represents the different clan groups of the area in traditional times and each of the eight clan groups are depicted by the small flower patterns. The large circle dots at the left and right represents the different races coming together for reconciliation. The handprints and the earthy colours depict the old ways and the past. The mural displays small dots which show the journey of the clan groups and the different races coming together in the centre. In the centre is the sun which is the creator, a good and safe place. The centrepiece also represents reconciliation with the black and white hand prints to show the different colours of all the people coming together.

 
 
The K Block mural displays the sea theme for the local area. Gwanda the dolphin helped the traditional Yugambeh people get the fish in the beaches and rivers nearby. Gwanda is in the centre of the mural and is surrounded by other sea animals. These are all significant to the indigenous people because this is the traditional food of the area. The border surrounding the sea animals contains handprints which depicts the local Yugambeh people.
