Student artwork inspired by volunteers

To celebrate 2018 National Volunteers Week, students from different schools across the state created drawings, paintings and banners. The artwork was a way to thank their volunteers for the incredible work they do.

Students did such a great job producing incredibly colourful pieces of art, some including messages of appreciation.

 ‘She helps me. We do fun things together.’

‘They make me happy to talk to someone at school.’

‘Volunteers are cool and awesome.’

‘Volunteers are the best. Thank you for being volunteers at our school.’

As you can see, our volunteers really do make a difference.
