FMPS is turning 15!

Sept 2021

Here will be a list of projects or events for FMPS
  • Mural Project


As part of our planning for Farley Mowat’s 15th Anniversary, as well as our desire to showcase the diversity of our school community, we are pleased to announce that a new mural is being painted in our lobby. 

Our goal is to have a mural which reflects the culture, diversity and spirit of our community. Students and staff have contributed their ideas for the mural, and we are excited to get it started!

Dave Lafreniere is a local artist who has created murals and wall decals for a number of schools in the Ottawa area.  We have shared student and staff feedback with him and he is now beginning to draft up some sample mural ideas.

We know that this mural will be a welcome addition to our front lobby and will symbolize the unity, inclusivity and collaborative efforts of our school community.

We are thrilled to share that staff and students have decided on a design for our new mural that will be located in our front lobby. In celebration of the 15th Anniversary of FMPS, we wanted to include a timeless piece of art that incorporates the diversity of our school community. Included in the artwork will be the word “welcome” in a variety of languages. We know that it will be a beautiful and welcome addition to our school.

We want to express our sincere thanks to our School Council for providing the funds for this project. Their fundraising efforts have been ongoing throughout this pandemic and we appreciate their hard work so much. Thank you also to our parent community for supporting their fundraising initiatives

We are looking for fundraising opportunities and cash donations from parents, alumni and the community!
