Artists in the making at Rosella Park School

​Artistic endeavours: Rosella Park School students participate in a community art installation at Gladstone Airport

​A group of students from Rosella Park School recently showed off their artistic creations as part of a community art installation at Gladstone Airport. This was a collaboration with Melissa Peacock from A Country Arts Practice.

Six months in the making, Years 11/12 students turned recycled paper into discs to create the eye-catching work on show for community members and visitors alike to enjoy. During the launch, students also choreographed a movement sequence about the challenges and celebrations of adolescents.

Rosella Park School's Senior Transition Officer Angela Craze said the arts project allowed students to share their self-expression.

"Our students gained so much confidence working with a new medium, and each week developed positive social connections while they completed the project," Ms Craze said.

"The community response has been wonderful, and we've received many compliments on their efforts and positive contribution to the local community."

Rosella Park School provides a specialised curriculum for students with moderate to severe intellectual impairments.
