WEYMOUTH – The Seach Primary School students had a simple task: create self-portraits that portray the characteristics that make each of them special and unique. Results included a ballerina who also loves to cook holding a frying pan, a boy standing on a stepping stool to paint on an easel and a hockey goalie wearing a Weymouth jersey.Artist David Fichter was then  supposed to combine the portraits into a mural to reflect the characteristics that make the school was it is."They wanted something on the outside that reflected back the fact that they're one of the more diverse schools in Weymouth, and they wanted to celebrate that and have it be something they could be proud of," Fichter said.
