Schoolgirls have created a public artwork to mark a milestone in space exploration.

Pupils from Bermuda High School painted the space-themed mural on the new Pembroke headquarters of security firm Bermuda Security Group.

The project was a collaboration between the two and the Bermuda Society of the Arts.

Nzingha Ming, gallery director at BSOA, said public art was an important part of any community.

She added: “The students did a tremendous job from start to finish.”

The mural is the first in a multiyear series of local school art projects.

The unveiling of the mural was timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing by the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969 and the 50th anniversary of BSG.

The Bermudian-based Nasa tracking station was used to help track the spacecraft, which touched down on the moon on July 20, 1969.
