MSP for Dunfermline, Bill Walker, has praised the efforts of local young people in designing winning murals for East End Park.
Students of Park Road Primary School, Queen Anne High School and Carnegie College responded to a challenge by Dunfermline Athletic Football Club (DAFC) and Visit Dunfermline to design the murals.
SNP MSP Mr Walker said:
“Well done to all who took part in this celebration of Dunfermline. I’ve seen pictures of the murals shortly going up, and they look great. Clearly, a lot of thought has gone into making them vibrant and original. Queen Anne High and Carnegie College put in a fine team effort—and what a fun entry from Park Road.”
Eight-year old Emma Smith’s Sammy the Tammy, the club mascot, was the winner for Park Road Primary, chosen by DAFC Director of Football Jim Leishman and Visit Dunfermline Director Thomas Moffat.
Meanwhile, pupils from Queen Anne High School recreated iconic Dunfermline landmarks, including the Abbey and City Chambers, in a dynamic new style. Carnegie College students portrayed some on Dunfermline’s famous faces, such as Iain Banks, Stuart Adamson and Mr Leishman himself.
The murals, going up this week, will be a permanent fixture at the historical football ground.
