Today, we had the pleasure of holding our first meeting regarding the John Colet School Sculpture Project with our visiting sculptor, Mr Philip Garrett. Mr Garrett will be in Australia for approximately three months, predominately working out of a studio in Terrey Hills, while visiting our school from time to time.
Present at the meeting were representatives from the School Board, Executive, students, staff and our architect. It was a stimulating discussion as we looked to pay tribute to the man, the tradition that he represents, as well as the culture and ethos of our school.
No definitive design has yet been established, however, background research has begun in earnest. All students will be helping with the initial creative process next week by creating images that symbolise our School Values.
We will keep you updated on the progress of this exciting project as it develops over the coming months.
