ROSALIE Primary School students displayed their artwork at the annual Rosalie Art Exhibition last week

The exhibition showcased colourful artwork created by students from years 1 to 6 over the past six weeks.

The school community used the event to farewell program organiser and artist in residence Fiona Willis, who had worked at the school for the past 20 years.

Deputy principal Linda Griffin said the school was losing a fantastic teacher and artist.

“The idea to have an artist in residence started off as an experience, but it became a tradition, with each year Fiona coming back to teach the students,” she said.

“We will certainly miss the creativity and professionalism that Fiona has brought to our school. She has been much more than the artist in residence and she is a part of the Rosalie family regardless of where she moves to.”
