      I am afraid not. Guess again :-)

      No, it isn't that either. You blew me away with your quick guess on my "Beached" photo, I had to make my next submission a bit more difficult ... : -)

      alright then, Quarda School

    5. *Brightburn* 88 months ago | reply

      Not that one either. After seeing a few names suggested I researched and discovered that my "discovery" of the colourful fish was not all that unique. It seems that a number of Victoria schools are on board with this project as well as other cities in Canada and the US.

      To narrow the search, I will add that this project site was completed in October of 2004.

      they're ubiquitous!....and there are a lot of elementary schools in SD 61...so, based on your title, and to try to narrow it down a bit further, i'm going to ask - is it a french immersion school?

      funny you should say that ... the kids were at recess when I took the shot. I took another mural shot from the side of the school, above their little heads. A teacher approached and I thought I might be questioned. Not so, just a pleasant "Hello". Perhaps if I had been a male it may have been a different story....

      no cqstrd, it is not a french immersion school although that would have been a great hint. You did make me google though to ensure I answered correctly. I just wanted to spice up the name a bit. If you want to ask more questions I am happy to answer. The list of schools participating is on the website. You just have to know what the name of the project is....

      ooh ooh i know the name of the project .. my daughter participated in the one at George Jay .. I won't give it away though :-)

    12. *Brightburn* 88 months ago | reply

      just look it up on the web and you will have the answer ... I did give the ultimate hint above to narrow your search :-)

      AhA! Stream of Dreams -- That would be Vic West Elementary if the hint is the date. My daughter also participated when at Macaulay which, oddly, is not on the list.

      Bingo! You picked the correct school involved in the project among the many schools involved. My apologies to all participants. I had no idea that "les poisson" were so prolific in Greater Victoria.

      i think these may be common in greater vancouver, too. i've seen at least 2 sites that i can think of, and i very rarely get around to neighborhood/school sorts of areas.
