STUDENTS across the Hills are getting ready to showcase their artistic skills work as part of the fifth Hills Education Community (HEC) Art Exhibition.

Wooroloo Primary School will host this year’s event and principal Nicole Kovalevs said the art exhibition provided schools with a vehicle to support the delivery of the visual arts curriculum.

“The show will include art from students attending Chidlow, Mt Helena, Wooroloo, Mundaring, Sawyers Valley, Parkerville, Helena Valley, Darlington, Glen Forest and Gidgegannup primary schools, as well as Eastern Hills Senior High School,” she said.

“It celebrates the work of students and teachers across the HEC schools and helps strengthen the network through the collaboration of staff.

“Importantly, it builds and maintains connections between communities.

The 2017 exhibition will open with an invitation-only event on May 31, and then be open for the broader community in the undercover area of the primary school on June 1 from 9am to 3pm, Friday, June 2, from 9am to 3pm and Saturday, June 3, from 9am to 10.30am.
