Students at St Michael’s Primary School exhibited this wonderful compilation of iconic buildings of Perth at the recent Town of Bassendean Visual Art Awards. We’re going to display them in the Library for as long we can!
Also exhibited at the TOB Art Awards were these panels telling the story of ‘Buttercup’. Anzac Terrace Primary School students decorated Buttercup the cow with artwork that reflects the heritage of the Bassendean area. Buttercup was one of four cows from Perth schools to go to the IGA Perth Royal Show this year. You can read the story of Buttercup on our foyer display wall in November.
