IN a continuous effort to create enriched learning environments for students, R.E.A.L Schools and Nippon Paint Malaysia Group have collaborated for the creation of six murals at R.E.A.L Schools Cheras Campus.
The mural project, which took three weeks to complete, is part of R.E.A.L Schools’ effort to create a stimulating and conducive environment for students, as well as to pave the way for them to further develop their creative talents.
The murals are also testament to R.E.A.L Schools Cheras Campus’ dedication in the field of arts and design, where educators and students alike are constantly encouraged to push their creative boundaries.
The murals were inspired by those in Penang and Ipoh, which became popular with both foreign and local tourists. R.E.A.L Education Group CEO Dr Goh Chee Leong said: “Through our collaboration with Nippon Paint, we have been able to provide our educators and students with an opportunity to push their creative boundaries through the painting of the murals.”
“This is in line with our vision to provide REAL education for the REAL world, and this involves preparing our students for the fourth and fifth industrial revolutions, which include skills relating to design, digital education, and the performing arts.
“And to add to that, we don’t need to go all the way to Penang or Ipoh to experience these creative 3D murals!” he added.
Nippon Paint Malaysia Group general manager Gladys Goh said the company understands the importance of students developing a sense of innovation and creative thinking.
“This is why we constantly inspire them to express themselves and be adventurous by exploring through colours, and create ideas that are outstanding and push conventional boundaries.
“Through our end-to-end coatings solutions, which cover all types of surfaces, we are able to work with R.E.A.L Schools to bring the 3D mural art to life on various wall surfaces.
“Our aim is also to create a vibrant environment for students to study and interact in,” she said.
Dr Goh added that R.E.A.L Schools Cheras Campus always prides itself for its excellence in arts and design, and this is why the campus has been selected to drive this particular collaboration.
“R.E.A.L Schools is committed to providing students with an avenue to develop their natural talents and further discover their potential along the way, which the students have been able to do through this collaboration.
“At R.E.A.L Schools, the learning journey has always been focused on nurturing and transforming students through active learning,” he added.
The murals at R.E.A.L Schools Cheras Campus were coated with Nippon Paint’s Weatherbond exterior range, which provides protection against the harsh climate in Malaysia.
This marks the second collaboration between Nippon Paint and R.E.A.L Education Group. In 2015, Nippon Paint repainted the R.E.A.L Kids Bukit Jelutong centre.
