and cost of the main mural painting included in the internal decorative scheme.

Mr. J. Stuart

This senior secondary school has not yet been completed. The final costs for the erection and equipping of the school are therefore not known, but the tenders to date total £328,650 exclusive of professional fees and contingencies, which cannot be ascertained until final costs are known. Provision was made in the painter work tender for mural work. The cost of the mural is understood to be £550 inclusive of the cost of the preparation of the wall. The actual length of the mural is 98 feet and the height in the centre is 24 feet tapering to 19 feet at the ends.
