Mali's Big Arrival (life size Elephant Sculpture).
As a part of the Melbourne Zoo's 150th Birthday celebrations schools were invited to submit a proposal that would see them directly involved in promoting creativity, citizenship and environmental awareness.
Last term Junior School submitted their proposal to receive a life size Fibre Glass elephant and were successful. This now allows us to be involved in a very special, mass participation cross curricula spectacular that will ‘stomp into life’ with fun creativity and colour.
Our students will paint, decorate and transform the white elephant into a beautiful sculpture this will be on show at a number of venues before taking part in the Gala celebrations at Melbourne Zoo in September and Mali will then come back home to Christian College Junior School in Belmont.
In the lead up we will be looking for interested students and parents with a keen interest in being involved.
