Transforming Tyres for This Year’s Floriade

Students from the Green Team were very fortunate to have a  fun‘spray painting’ experience last Wednesday. Under the expert supervision of Geoff Filmer of Graffik Paint, students from Kindy to Year 6, donned air masks and oversized shirts and with spray paint cans in hand transformed sets of tyres which will now be planted with flowers and later appear at the upcoming Floriade.

Kaleen Primary was one of four schools across the ACT invited to take part and we remain indebted to Geoff, head gardener of Floriade, Andrew Foster and Executive Producer of Floriade, Vickii Cotter for allowing us this unique opportunity.
