Like the trees decorating the walls around our College, we want our students to flourish and be resilient and able to adapt to different environments. Students from across the College have completed the ceramic flowers and leaves that make up the trees and vines ‘growing’ around the College. Our ceramics teacher, Katrina Mann initiated this project.

Senior students worked with Jean Sheridan and painted the octopus on the old wooden yacht which was donated by a parent. Neli Uren, a woodwork teacher, created the fisherman. The grevilleas planted in the boat attract birds who feed on the nectar of the flowers.

One of our resident blue tongue lizards has been sighted in the boat!
