The Young children are pressing their hands in the tiles as a representation of welcoming, unity and inclusiveness . The older children will be painting their designs on the tiles. Each class has a different sub-theme. Sport, clothes, flags, language, music, animals and Australian flora are the themes.
I started with the pre-primary kids. The photos are of the hand pressing and name stamping.
I made a set of ceramic lower case letters many years ago. Because they are hand carved they are different sizes and look a bit like kids writing, so perfect for this project.
Everyone has come up with individual and interesting designs. I can't wait to see them finished.
