Garden Project

Year 4 and 1 students collaborate together as they design and create an eagle sculpture for the garden project. Ben Wrigley, our artist in residence has worked with us to build the statue. Each student will form their own wooden feather to be inserted into the sculpture. These feathers have been utilised within the classroom as we engage students to explore mathematical concepts.
