Our students participated in the following workshops

Workshop 1: ‘Public space and my neighbourhood’


  • Learnt about how cities and neighbourhoods are designed
  • Talked about how people use outdoor spaces
  • Walked to Palm Plaza and assessed the outdoor site
  • Recorded ideas on how we can make outdoor spaces better for children

Workshop 2 ‘Children’s Festival and fun activities’

Students worked with a local artist to visually present what would make the Greater Dandenong Children’s Festival the best Festival in Melbourne!

It was a brilliant event and we hope we will have the opportunity to participate again next year!
