TERM ONE AT A GLANCE!
This year we have two wonderful Art Captains Katy and Reiley. They are quickly working out that being a Captain is fun, but also hard work and a role that comes with responsibility! Now that the weather has turned quite wintery, I am seeing them nearly everyday during lunchtime and recess! So much more comfortable in a heated art room!
Winners of the 2017 Lions Club Peace Poster Competition!
It was a very proud moment for the four students whose work was selected, out of nearly 150 Rangeview student posters, to represent our school in this years Peace Poster competition.
Well done Kate, Michelle, Ethan and Rohan. Don’t spend that prize money too quickly!
Our delightful grade ones and twos have been experimenting with scissors and paper to create the most amazing designs. Lines, pattern, shape, angles are being explored.
INSPIRED BY THE WORK OF FRED WILLIAMS.
Level 5 have had a lot of fun exploring different ways of applying paint to achieve images of Australian Landscapes.
The results have been amazing!
ART CAPTAINS FOR 2017
Mrs V and I are very excited about the art captains role this year! We have been blessed with not one but two art captains who already shown great leadership skills and enthusiasm in their endeavours to be successful school leaders.
Well done Morgan and Jay!
Every year the Lions Club of Australia hold a competition promoting world peace. The entrance age is 10 to 13, and every child in grades 5 and 6 were asked to create a poster to promote this theme.
Three posters were chosen by a member of the Lions Club to represent Rangeview Primary School. The photo above is of our very talented artists, whose designs were chosen.
WE DID IT!
It was like making a silk purse out of a sow’s ear ( no offence to the staff who generally fill the corridor with displays) when we transformed our main corridor into ‘The Rangeview Art Gallery’.
When you exhibit over 600 pieces of beautiful student art work it will always be an amazing sight!
If you haven’t yet visited our gallery, do yourself a favour. It is well worth a visit!
OUR MURAL PAINTING PROGRESS
I can’t begin to express how exciting it is to watch the ideas that began as drafts, take shape on our Mural Painting. I am so proud that our grade five and six children will have a legacy that will continue on at Rangeview, long after they have all left! What a wonderful way to leave your mark on a school!
What a great morning the Grade 5 and 6 students had working on the beginning of a new school project with our Mural artist Simon Dransfield! I can’t wait to see what unfolds!
(Word to self: Children and paint can be a dangerous combination, as pointed out by our resident hardworking handy man, who bemoaned the fact that we now have white footprints outside our art room door! Must remember to talk about how to remove paint quickly from unwanted surfaces!)
