Pupils’ artwork goes on show
A collection of artwork by gifted and talented Rockingham Beach Primary School students went on display at the Gary Holland Centre last week.
Built on the theme of The Green Man, the inaugural exhibition of work by students from years 3- 6 was opened by South Metropolitan MLC Aaron Stonehouse.
The exhibition opened on Tuesday, December 18 and ran until Saturday, December 22 and Rockingham Beach Primary School visual arts teacher Sian Roberts said students worked hard throughout term four to produce the outstanding pieces.
“They were frankly too good to send straight home — we couldn’t help by share them with a wider audience, thus the display,” she said.
Mr Stonehouse praised the initiative and said his only regret was none of the pieces were for sale.
“It’s great to see Rockingham Beach Primary School engaging with the wider community in this way,” he said.
