Camillia Art Project - Thursday 13 September 1:40-3pm

We are looking forward to Artist Wendy Hannah visiting school next week to make recycled plastic cut outs to celebrate our Women Heroines.  Wendy will show a short powerpoint presentation which talks about the Suffrage Movement historically and what it means moving into the future. The workshop will have parallels with recycling plastic, then workshops with local artists, demonstrating how to upcycle plastic bottles. Their art team will visit each hub at the same time so the whole school can make recycled camellias. Children will all make a camillia and add it to her art installation. Parents are invited to come along and help the children make their art piece. 

Please see the video here:

Please collect your 1.5 - 2-litre coke, sprite, and tonic bottles (ideally those with a flower shape at the bottom) and send in to school. Ideally each student will need 2 bottles.
