We have just received the news that we achieved 1st Place Nationally for our 'Sasaki Tumanako' Wearable Arts Entry for the Junior Section. 2nd and 3rd place went to Breens Intermediate. Feedback from the judges:
Demonstrating a maturity and thoughtfulness beyond their years, the students responsible for this garment should be very proud; it was truly heartwarming to see the way you have taken the paper crane and used it ‘en masse’ for maximum effect to create something so beautiful with an important message behind it.
Congratulations to the children of Dudley and Jen and Jan for all their hardworking on creating this.
