It was a day to remember on many levels for a special cause when St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School on Queensland's Gold Coast, hosted a visit from Bruce and Denise Morcombe to promote child safety for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation's annual Day for Daniel event.
Daniel Morcombe was abducted in 2003 while waiting for a bus and Australia rallied behind parents Bruce and Denise Morcombe as the search for answers and Daniel began. The Daniel Morcombe Foundation begun in 2005 and has gained momentum through it'd dedication to educating children, parents, teachers and communities on child safety.
Through liaising with the school, local council, Blask Photography for aerial and on ground imagery, SupaTurf, media, Shared Marketing and the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, the application of a 100 square metre (1076 square feet) image of Daniel Morcombe and the foundation's logo was created for a spectacular welcome to special guests, Bruce and Denise Morcombe.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation image was applied two days before the scheduled visit to allow for weather contingencies with the presentation being completed from the initial robotic outlining through to the final painting taking just over 4 hours. It was the first time an image of Daniel had ever been replicated on the ground and was a special moment for all those involved on the day including the 650 students of the school, dressed in red, who surrounded the image to show their support.
It was an amazing event to be a part of and the results of the day speak for themselves in the images from the day. If you would like to organise a GrassAd for your next special event, contact our head office today.
