Art Group for Students

Lismore South Public School

Lismore South Public School has a number of students who are very talented artists, yet don't have the opportunities to join a local art group for kids. The school would love some art students to come into the school and run a supportive, fun and engaging group for these students. This opportunity would suit students studying education or occupational therapy - HLT10595.

Working on this project you will make a difference in Key Impact Area: Education; Sustainable Development Goal: Quality Education (SDG 4).
