Rainbow Serpent

 

Rainbow Serpent

Hampton Park was awarded a grant form PALs and this money was used to create a Rainbow Serpent which is now hanging in the garden next to the basketball courts. The children in Room 1 used rubber mallets to flatten the cleaned out Nespresso coffee pods which improved their hand eye co-ordination. Then each class was given 200 pods to design their part of the Serpent. Last week we began gluing the pods and by Friday it was finished.

The teachers have explained the significance of the Rainbow Serpent to Aboriginal Culture.

This project also helped the environment because we saved thousands of pods from going to landfill and the coffee grinds were used in the worm farms.

I would like to thank all the classes for participating in this project by collecting pods, providing a design and helping glue on the pods. I would also like to offer a special thanks to Mr Merrells for helping me glue the pods. His help was greatly appreciated.

Next time you are at school please feel free to come and have a look at our amazing piece of art.

If you have saved any Nespresso pods you can still send them to school because we have a recycling box in the staffroom. If you have cleaned them out I will be collecting them for my next project.

Once again thank you everyone and I hope you enjoy the Rainbow Serpent.
