My Country

This week a group of Haileybury Rendall School students opened their very own art exhibition.

The Exhibition, titled ‘My Country’, was planned, themed and hosted by the VCAL students and was a great success.

In attendance were Haileybury Rendall School Principal Mr Craig Glass and Haileybury CEO|Principal Mr Derek Scott. The Learning Centre was full of excited parents, friends and students all hoping to find a piece of art to take home.

The artwork on display was a culmination of the VCAL students’ art throughout the year, inspired by their own research and a visit to the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. 

The artwork included wooden letterboxes and traditional Aborignal paintings, fitting with the theme. The design and technical drawing elements of the letterboxes were also part of the students’ numeracy unit.

The class worked together to decide on the date, location, promotion and delivery if the Exhibition. Through this process they were able to gain practical skills, learning how to manage different tasks and stage an event.

Congratulations to all the students and staff involved on a wonderful celebration of art and culture.
