The world needs creative, innovative and courageous young people who can connect, collaborate and act. We know that youth may only be 20% of the population but they are 100% of the future. The time is now to let them share their dreams and design the future they want to see.

  1. The Henry Lawson High School is an amazing school and these rural students have the dissected subject matter better than a butchers blade. And how about that nose!

  2. Love the Wiripaang’s bull… The connectedness with another farming export of cotton, the Bonds brand tied in, the cotton reels, etc. Well done Wiripaang!

  3. West Pennant Hills your cow is fantastic!!! I love the trendy jeans and the extra bit of gold bling. But best of all I love that the kids got to add bits that reflected their learning – like the cotton touches from Year 1. Go West Penno!

  4. *giggles* GO CALVARY! A working water system? Now that’s pretty cool. One side depicting what it is like with agriculture and the other the devastation that happens, along with noting that we are not the only people out there shows a wider knowledge of the world!

  5. Congratulations to Calvary Christian College – Springwood Campus. Cotley the cow is a wonderful display of thought provoking art. Good crop , Bad crop. Great ideas students.
