I am very proud to announce that both my Sculpture and Creative Textiles class entered with selected artwork and won FIRST PRIZE! The competition was open to all schools in the Canberra region, as part of National Recycling Week which goes from Monday 10th November to Sunday 16th November. The challenge set was to “Think like an artist or inventor and dare to dream of doing things a different way. How creative can you be?”.  Our students rose to the challenge with flying colours and we submitted the following creations to be judged by ACT NOWaste.

Reinvent your Wardrobe Class – Upcycled a pair of Denim Jeans into…

Hannah Mcgregor – A blue whale

Kristie Li – A back pack

Sharon Li – An apron and a wallet

Haylea Bourne – A reversible bucket hat

Sculpture Class – Used only plastic recyclable materials and a hot glue gun to create…

Madelyn Ferguson – Robecca: A ballerina Dog

Laura Van Der Zwart – Cute little Elephant with a multi-coloured slinky for a trunk

Andrea McQuirk – Clank: A see thorough plastic robot with a heart

Aleisha Prentice – A cheeky little robot with a mouth that can open.

I would just like to take this opportunity to say how proud I am of my students, they worked so hard on their pieces and it showed in the First Prize result. The award was presented to our students at a ceremony in Westfield Woden by Minister Shane Rattenbury and the prize was $250 in Bunnings vouchers. The exhibition runs all week and can be viewed in Westfield Woden Level 2 outside the shops – Veronica Maine and Country Road.
