130th Celebrations - Rose Workshop

31 July 2017 | 2016_News

Throughout Term 2 and Term 3 the St Aloysius staff and students have been working on an art installation to celebrate our 130th year. The art installation will comprise of around 600 ceramic roses which will be placed in the school grounds. Each rose is symbolic of the individual qualities and gifts each person brings to the College and inspired by the College’s crest, the works of Catherine Mc Auley and the Sisters of Mercy.

On Thursday 27th July we also had a group of parents and guardians who participated in a workshop to complete their rose. The session was a great success with the ladies completing not just one rose for the installation, but also one to take home. I’d like to thank Angelina, Kelly, Linda, Amina, Gaye, Jacqui, Amanda and Marita for coming and creating such beautiful roses, also for the great conversation and laughs. We look forward to holding other creative sessions in the future where our community can be involved in and be part of the Visual Arts work that we do here at the College. The official completion of this project and unveiling will be on Mercy Day Friday 15th September.
