Recently we were delighted to host 40 students studying environment and conservation at the Chinese University in Hong Kong. They were visiting Australia as part of an International Leaders Program and came to learn about Centennial Parklands various natural and built environments. The learning may have been interesting, but what they did after was fun!
Following a tour of the Parklands’ flying fox colony and ponds, Ranger Sam provided them with a hands-on activity using natural materials from the Parklands to create a work of art in the outdoors.
After their ‘Renaissance pieces’ were completed the outdoor gallery was open for inspection!
The students then recorded and photographed their creations, and sent us some of the photos that they wanted to share with us all.
Just another week in Centennial Parklands. Another reason why we should love it!
