As part of SA Refugee Week, students from the Year 8 Special Interest Visual Art class recently designed posters for the SA Refugee Week Youth Poster Awards Exhibition 2021.

Young people studying in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions are invited to produce a poster that celebrates the themes of multiculturalism, human rights, cultural diversity, anti-racism and the welcoming of refugees into Australia. The exhibition is hosted by the Migrant Resource Centre of South Australia in association with the University of South Australia.

From over 280 entries, 75 students from 40 schools were selected to have their artworks included in the final Poster Exhibition, including Woodville High School students Madison Bult and Naima Bint Islam. Former Woodville High School student, Sophie Lemaistre who is now studying Communication (Graphic) Design at UniSA, was also represented in the Tertiary section with her image of a Sturt’s Desert Pea incorporating various country flags.

The exhibition was officially launched on Tuesday 22nd June during SA Refugee Week at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, University of South Australia.                  

Well done to all students involved and congratulations to our Woodville High School finalists, Madison and Naima!
