St Scholastica’s College in Avenue Road, Glebe, will hold an Aboriginal art exhibition from 12-14 June to showcase the talents of emerging indigenous artists, including some work by the school’s own talented students. Money raised by the exhibition will go to St Scolistaca’s Indigenous Fund to support current and future indigenous students.
St Scholastica’s College has a long history of successfully educating young indigenous women. The Sisters of the Good Samaritan started the tradition in the early 70s and, as the need has become greater, the College has accepted more indigenous girls in both the day and boarding college. At present in the boarding college there are 20 students from isolated and regional areas in NSW including Walgett and Dubbo and 35 in the day school, who come from suburbs in Sydney.
The community is invited to attend the exhibition. A gala evening will be held on Fridav, 12 June, from 7.30pm and Deborah Cameron of ABC Radio will open the exhibition. The school’s indigenous dance group also will perform.
It promises to be an exciting and festive evening and a great exhibition with lots of affordable art. Should vou wish to attend please phone 9660 2622.
