A wave of excitement floods GO! elementary school De Bijenkorf in Herent, as they are delighted to unveil their beautifully refurbished exterior facade, transformed by talented artists from Treepack. In a creative collaboration, the idea was born to start the new school year with a colorful surprise: an enchanting mural featuring a cheerful vehicle and charming company that will welcome all children with open arms.
The enthusiastic team at GO! elementary school De Bijenkorf is ready to serve their students every day, and what could be more fun than to amaze them with a new and artistic spectacle that fits seamlessly with the school vision and reflects the children's eagerness to learn and play?
The mural depicts a vivid representation of a frog and a mouse sitting together in an airplane. These two seemingly different characters symbolize the value of collaboration and diversity, which are central themes in The Beehive's vision. The frog and mouse sit enthusiastically ready for their imaginary journey, and the chalkboard behind them shows what exciting adventures await them.
Remarkably, the vehicle is shaped like a bee and is manually driven. This symbolizes the school's efforts to promote environmental awareness among students by encouraging them to come to school by bicycle as much as possible. This initiative has positive effects on both the environment and the health of the students.
Is it possible that this fantasy vehicle can actually fly? The artistic creation demonstrates inventiveness and entrepreneurial spirit and is reminiscent of the world of Panamarenko, who was known for his self-designed vehicles. It inspires students to dream of extraordinary possibilities and symbolizes the pursuit of freedom. This forms a wonderful goal to be pursued throughout their school careers, ultimately allowing the children to joyfully go their own way.
GO! elementary school De Bijenkorf in Herent is proud to display this breathtaking mural as an expression of their commitment to education, collaboration and diversity. It is an inspiring eye-catcher that creates a lasting memory for staff members, students, parents and the local community.
