Student artwork by the Taylor River

Student artwork will soon grace some of the entrances to Blenheim’s Taylor River.

Some of the Springlands Go MAD (Make a Difference) students came up with an idea to design artwork with messages to remind people to take care of special reserves in our region.  The students displayed all the artwork in the staffroom window and then asked the school to vote on their six favourites. The MDC reserves team kindly turned these six artworks into signs that will be displayed on some of the entrances to the Taylor River.

This was an exciting project that was totally developed by students with a bit of support. Look out for the signs when you are next walking along the river: they will be up by the end of the year.

Springlands School are not content to stop there and want to make more of a difference so will be contacting some other schools in the new year with a bit of a challenge. Ka pai Springlands!
