The school is located in rural Tasmania deep in the valley with a rivulet surrounding the school's boundaries. The emphasis on connecting students to their environment was important for the school. Working with the children we set out to draw the native wildlife found in the local area. Through their engagement the students connected to their natural environment as part of their daily learning.
As the participating students move from primary to high school, they can reflect on their former time as young students. The work collates the student's drawings into a unique depiction of the school's bush setting. There are animals in the river and in the bush. Looking to the west you can see the tips of the southwest mountains.
