It all began when …
Year 2 students went to Elwood Beach with Beach Patrol and picked up a lot of rubbish. Afterwards in Art we used the rubbish to make sea creatures. People who were organising the ‘Creatures of the Bay’ exhibition came to school to pick up all of our creatures. The creatures were then taken to Gasworks Art Gallery where they were displayed. With all of the sea creatures together it looked like a real ocean!
We all had speeches written but sadly we couldn’t say them because there wasn’t enough time. However Miss Reus saw the Mayor and asked her if she would listen to our speeches. She listened and was so impressed that she invited Milo and Bernie to a City of Port Phillip Council meeting to say our speech. Milo had written down the whole speech and presented it last night at the Council meeting to the Mayor and councillors. “I felt very proud and excited that I did it. I got a big clap after I had done it. One of the councillors said she had been there, at the Creatures of the Bay exhibition, and saw the creatures and said it was amazing!” (Milo).
A short time after the Year 2 children went on an excursion to see our art work. That was today!
