IN THE last fort­night the Mun­dub­bera State School com­mu­nity has been en­gaged in cre­at­ing mo­saics to mark its cen­te­nary un­der the guid­ance of tal­ented mo­saic artist and teacher, Sandy Robert­son.

The cre­ation of the main cen­te­nary mo­saic, mea­sur­ing 2.4m x 1.2m, and five smaller mo­saics, mea­sur­ing about 50cm x 70cm, is be­ing made pos­si­ble by fund­ing from RADF and Mun­dub­bera P&C As­so­ci­a­tion.

Stu­dents and in­ter­ested par­ents and com­mu­nity mem­bers learned how to cut tesser­aes into dif­fer­ent shapes and how to glue them.

“Feed­back from stu­dents has been pos­i­tive, even the boys have not stopped talk­ing to their par­ents about what they’ve learned,” Mun­dub­bera P&C trea­surer Ros Kugel said.

“Thanks must go to the tal­ented Sandy Robert­son, of OZMo­saics, and her hus­band Davie who have con­nected with the stu­dents in a pos­i­tive way.”
