The Beauty that Exists

 

         As visitors enter our school, they will notice the vibrant colors infused on our building walls. Our students, teachers, parents and community partners who understand the "Ilima Way" know how important it is to honor our past. Our past includes teachers, parents, ancestors and the plantation history that tie us all together. As such, our murals represent our humble efforts to pay tribute to the history of Ewa Beach and the historic Hawaiian art displayed on murals that once identified Ilima Intermediate as the landmark middle school of Ewa Beach and Kapolei (before Kapolei Middle and East Kapolei Middle were built)! We invite you to view the beauty of our murals as each one is a collaborative work amongst students along with artists Mr. Jesse Velasquez and International Wave Artist Mr. Hilton Alves! 

 

          Ilima Intermediate sits on land filled with rich history, tradition and culture. Our murals pay tribute to the abundance of knowledge which has shaped current leaders and productive members of various communities! The collective message of all our murals is about one message:  "Our students are our precious resources to humankind and for all of eternity!"  In Hawaiian culture, students are often compared to lei and how it is our kuleana (responsibility) to care for them. Therefore, the collective message of our murals and our mission is, "'O ka lei mae 'ole ke ke keiki."

 

While we learn from our past, we reflect on the present and educate for the future. Everyday! Every student! Care! Serve! Inspire! The Ilima Way!
