Macintyre High School Sign

MACINTYRE HIGH SCHOOL in Inverell, New South Wales just celebrated 40 years since their opening. The school enjoys a good reputation for excellence in sports, academics and cultural experiences such as specialized drama, dance, visual art, photography and music. Wood and metal workshops as well as kitchens and textiles rooms are all equipped for vocational education and good sporting facilities are available as well as a large library. The school’s excellent record in state wide exams show their success in academics, with small class sizes and specialized programs. They have a good track record in sports, too – often competing in regional and statewide competitions.

The thistle and clover (shamrock) on the school’s logo reflect the Celtic roots in this area. The thistle with its purple flower and spiky leaves and prickes has traditionally represented Scotland and is said to represent nobility of character. The well known Irish shamrock is said to have been used by Saint Patrick to describe the holy trinity with its three leaves on one stem. Here, the artwork is hand sculpted with gouges, while the main text and groove border are incise carved by hand as well and gilded with 23kt gold leaf. The smaller text is carved and painted. Layered panels and top trim give the sign its very dimensional and classy look. Made from high density urethane (HDU) and painted with Dulux Weathershield paints which are highly UV-resistant, this sign will last for many years, and will not warp or split like wood although it looks just like wood, since the materials are completely waterproof.
