Act-Belong-COmmiT elevate arts
PROUDLY SUPPORTED BY Shire of Mundaring
This annual environmental art project provides an opportunity for primary school children in the Shire of Mundaring to engage with local and global environmental issues and promote a positive message about the importance of protecting the earth.
THINGS WITH WINGS
This year’s theme Things with Wings encourages focus on local native birds, bats and insects, but also a broader environmental concept of the role of pollinators in ecosystems. Exploration of pollination systems will enhance ecosystem literacy through students developing an understanding of the interdependencies between plants and animals.
