Ex­hi­bi­tion a show of ap­pre­ci­a­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Opinion -

ROSALIE Pri­mary School stu­dents dis­played their art­work at the an­nual Rosalie Art Ex­hi­bi­tion last week

The ex­hi­bi­tion show­cased colour­ful art­work cre­ated by stu­dents from years 1 to 6 over the past six weeks.

The school com­mu­nity used the event to farewell pro­gram or­gan­iser and artist in res­i­dence Fiona Wil­lis, who had worked at the school for the past 20 years.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Linda Grif­fin said the school was los­ing a fan­tas­tic teacher and artist.

“The idea to have an artist in res­i­dence started off as an ex­pe­ri­ence, but it be­came a tradition, with each year Fiona com­ing back to teach the stu­dents,” she said.

“We will cer­tainly miss the cre­ativ­ity and pro­fes­sion­al­ism that Fiona has brought to our school. She has been much more than the artist in res­i­dence and she is a part of the Rosalie fam­ily re­gard­less of where she moves to.”

Prin­ci­pal Roslyn Kay, Fiona Wil­lis and UWA cu­ra­tor Dr Jan­ice Lally.
