FENCING at Two Rocks Primary School sports a collection of silhouette-inspired art works created by students last year.

The students, who are now in Year 6, posed while acting out sports and took photos of each other, which were enlarged and transferred onto wooden boards.

“The boards were decorated with colourful circles, where warm or cool selections had to be carefully considered,” media and marketing committee member Laura Head said.

“Yanchep District High School cut out the silhouettes from the boards.”

The sports silhouettes now hang on the fence around the school’s basketball courts.

Last year’s Year 6 students left an arty parting gift, taking part in a competition to design a mural.

“The ocean was an obvious choice for most and the winning designs were jointly created by Bowe De Haas and Chaise Durnin,” Miss Head said.

“After sketching their design onto tiles on the exterior library wall, the design was painted.

“This painting was then creatively transformed into an eye-catching mural with recycled bottle tops which the whole school community helped to collect.

“Thanks to Brian and Nardia Ginn for their help with the project, which was a real community effort, embracing the importance of recycling and taking care of our planet.”

Year 3 students used extra bottle tops for garden art as well.
