Having painted a World War I Mural on the Welsh Walls during the Summer Term, Marches School students have painted a second mural near Oswestry.

Having been so impressed with the design, poignancy and impact that the first mural has had on the town of Oswestry, the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital kindly asked the art students at the Marches School to paint them a mural too.

The result has again, been stunning. The awe-inspiring mural has been created to highlight the Hospitals Veterans’ Orthopaedic Centre Appeal, and it is located on the walls outside the pre-op, close to where they propose the centre will go. To help with the appeal, please go to: https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/rjah/veterans.

Victoria Robinson, Head of Art at the Marches School, commented: “Our students have taken a great deal from being given the opportunity to paint both of these murals. It has highlighted an important time in our history, as well as promoting a wonderful cause at the hospital. All of the students and staff involved have been delighted to be asked to contribute to this community in such a positive manner.”
