STUDENT artwork is standing out in Aveley.

Willow Brook Lifestyle Village approached Swan Valley Anglican Community School to use the art on a fence around the construction site of the next stage of development at the village.

Village director Colin Castensen said the artwork added vibrancy to the site where work would start in the coming weeks with Dale Alcock Projects.

“The positive feedback received has been overwhelming from both the residents and the local community,” he said.

“We are pleased to have received such wonderful support for the talented primary school students who range from Year 1 to Year 6.

“We are all about building a community within a community, building strong mutually rewarding and supportive relationships.”

In the past three months village residents have enjoyed an afternoon tea, musical performance, bingo, bocce and brunch as well as a high tea provided by the Anglican school’s hospitality students.

School registrar and community relations officer Candide Loos said the school-village relationship was seen as a great benefit to students and residents.

“This alliance allows our students the opportunity to be contributing citizens of the global community whilst enhancing their interpersonal skills,” she said.

“The opportunities are endless and we look forward to strengthening this connection in 2019 and beyond.”
