SCAPE PUBLIC ART
The RE:ACTIVATE project has focused on aspiring artists from year 1-8 and year 9-13. Two designs from each will be produced by SCAPE to feature in the six week exhibition from October through November.
This year pupils of Little River School submitted their designs for sculptural art along the theme of Tūrangawaewae. This theme closely aligned with our annual concept of Identity and one that our pupils worked with their teachers and Josie Whelan to develop into unique designs for public artworks.
It is with great pride that we can officially celebrate Alex as one of the artists to have their design constructed and featured in the central city of Christchurch.
Alex has kept this exciting news secret for a month. If you know her well, you would have seen a grin and bounce in her step since she learned her design had one!
Alex’s design is made up of coloured transparent windows, each piece representing people of different shapes, sizes, colours, religions, and beliefs.
The sculpture is intended to show how everyone comes together as one, to strengthen and support each other.
Alex thinks that our Tūrangawaewae is being together.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and hard working staff, parents and community members.
We also have a lot of pumpkin soup and pie while you look around all the attractions and enter some competitions.
