In 1938 Louise Henderson taught art at Rangiora High School for half a day each week. While there, she painted a series of eight mural panels for the local nursery school. These depict rural life over the four seasons of the year. In 2023, Rangiora High School generously gave the panels it held to Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū.
