Youthful artistes have painted an enormous 160ft mural in Belmont.

The work was produced by 36 art students who volunteered from 10 schools in Belmont and Port of Spain.

Their work of art now graces the wall of the St. Francis R.C. Church in Belmont.

It was part of a communication module featuring young people, calling for their assistance to produce a large depiction of a monastery garden in honour of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of all God's creatures and the natural environment.

Coordinator of the project, Mickal Pierre, explains why they are working on this mission.

She says the idea came from Dennis Mc Comie and the youth were very excited to work on it.

Ms. Pierre says it is their hope that this tremendous gift of themselves and their creativity to the Belmont community, to restore the 116 year old National Heritage Trust site, will gain support and real attention from the private and public sector.

She says conservation and heritage is everybody's business and could lead to a better quality of life for everyone.
