McGuire VCAL Students Community Based Projects
Date: 11 November 2019
Local businesses come together to assist McGuire VCAL students to complete community projects.
As part of the McGuire year 11 VCAL Program, the students are completing several community based projects.
These projects all involve artwork around the McGuire school campus as well as brightening the Gowrie Street Primary School playground. The initiative is support by Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project.
The first project is the creation of a large “Welcome to McGuire” world map which includes the word “Welcome” in all the languages that are represented by the school community. This project will show the diversity of the school to all those when entering the campus gates with a warm welcome.
The second project is creating a picture collage of McGuire College from 1966 to 2019. This project allows the school to show McGuire’s history which is particularly poignant considering that in 2020 four local the schools will reunite into one. This project is a great way to remember McGuire’s history and give the students, teachers and visitors to the campus the opportunity to look back at the memories of McGuire College.
The third and last project requires the students to make playground stencils for Gowrie Street Primary School. It has been noted that the students at Gowrie Street Primary School would love to liven and brighten up their playground area. The VCAL students will be using stencils to paint different vibrant pictures around the school’s playground area.
McGuire Secondary School VCAL teacher, Ms Megan Dixon has said “the students are very excited about the projects and would like to thank the Lighthouse Project for connecting the students with local businesses Walls and Windows and Drive for Industry who have kindly donated all the supplies and tools in order to make these projects happen”.
All projects are being completed from 31st October with completion by 7th November.
