Colourful cafe: The cafe at King's Garden centre is looking brighter thanks to
the efforts of Mt Albert Grammar School senior art students who worked during
terms 3 and 4 to produce a mural for the centre. The project was a collaboration
with King's Cafe manager Yvonne Lennon. The mural was designed by Ashlee
Ridgway-Keehn and Brittany Haylock-Skinner. King's Cafe donated $500 to the
school, Wiri Timber donated workers to install the mural and Altura Coffee
donated $250 to the school's art department.
