Local students participating in the Ignite Program are designing a mural featuring a strong message about culture and inclusion as part of their studies.
“This project has involved the Bundaberg Neighbourhood Centre,” Cheryl said.
“The students have created the multicultural and inclusion theme, designed through their eyes.
“Once complete, it will be displayed at the Tom Quinn Centre.”
“The mural, being painted by the students, will be positioned on the retainer wall in the garden and will feature artwork surrounding the theme of the Harmony Garden.
“It's such a wonderful project that fits in so well with what the students are learning as well as what the garden is all about.”
Ignite Program provides students with a positive learning environment
Cheryl said by providing students with hands-on activities like the mural project, it was helping them learn in a way that was fun, hands on and engaging.
“Ignite has a lot of different benefits,” she said.
“I think it is important to have alternate learning because not every student fits in the mainstream mould.
“This is giving them a chance to refocus, work out what their goals are and look at re-engagement.”
