Inspired by the Old Masters and God’s creation, our young masters have recreated Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers.
See a sample of their works below.
The Bright Sun
A Sunny Day
The Sun is Facing the Sunflowers
Stage 1 composed a Toy Narrative that followed the structure of an orientation, complication and resolution. See a sample of how the students used literacy techniques and illustrations to add meaning to their texts.
Stage 1 continue the journey of creativity, merging Maths with imagination to reinvisage shapes.
‘A diamond is just a diamond until you add a string, wind and a person holding it.’
‘A circle is just a circle until you add wheels, a driver, and engine and a road.’
‘A circle is just a circle until you add eyes, nose, a smile and some hair.’
‘A circle is just a circle until you add ears, mouth, eyes and whiskers.’
‘An oval is just an oval until you add two ears, some hair, a nose, two eyes, two ears and a mouth.’
‘A square is just a square until you add wheels, a driver, smoke stack and carriages.’
Stage 2 celebrates nature through Haiku!
This traditional form of Japanese poetry captures moments in time in simple sensory language:
Three lines, the first and third with five syllables each and the middle with seven syllables.
Free form punctuation and sentence structure.
Repetition but no rhyme.
Stage 3 have been expanding their artistic repertoire, studying the styles of Pro Hart, Picasso,
Andy Warhol’s Pop Art, animal expressionism and anthropomorphism!

Alanah Reece – Stage 2
I selected photography because it gives me courage to have a voice and express myself.
We have been going through difficult times around the world and when I watch the sun go down slowly, l feel a sense of joy and hope.
I watch the clouds changing colour very subtly and from the darkness I see the light. I feel the wind blowing in my hair and I watch the lapping of the waves gently on the shore.
The beauty of God’s creation fills me with gratitude and compassion for other people near and far away.
