Braddell Heights SG50 Mural Project






So another area celebrates Singapore's 50th anniversary. This time it's Braddell Heights, Serangoon. 

Nanyang Junior College, in 2007, decorated the void decks of the local HDBs with 30 murals in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the college. So in February of this year they decided to add another 15, making the total 50 - SG50.

As with the others the themes represent the heritage and history of the area and Singapore. 

So a big 'thank you' to my friend for contacting the college who kindly sent a map listing each mural, on each block, although it's known that a few are within the Colleges grounds, including an extremely large 40 metre long one, which is visible from the exterior. We have been invited to view the schools murals but with time running short I've decided to write this post and if I get the chance I'll add the additional school grounds ones if able.

So on one extremely hot day, a couple of weeks ago, I hopped on the bus and walked what seemed every block in Serangoon!

I'm listing these murals purely by the way I walked the area......
