OUR SHOP IS OPEN AND WE NEED YOUR HELP…….PLEASE.
The grade 8 art students have been working very hard, over the last 14 weeks on a collaboration with Commack Middle School, New York. They also connected with an author/illustrator from Australia, Graeme Base.
“It is wonderful to see the many ways ‘Animalia’ has touched people over the years – and never more so than when it is through the eyes of children. Witnessing new artistic talent emerging is a great thrill for those lucky enough to experience it. I am very grateful to have been able to watch this very special book project come into existence and extend my sincere congratulations to all involved.”
Graeme Base, Melbourne 2016
ALL students researched, wrote and illustrated this beautiful book, which is now for sale at the very reasonable price of $25.00 plus postage.
All profits will be donated to WWF (World Wildlife Fund).
You can view more information about this project here.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
- You could either fill out the pre-order form and submit it with the money to either the front office, ES, HS or MS reception. (NOTE: The form has been sent home and via email. I have attached another copy just incase) The one time only group order will be placed on Friday 20th Jan, 2017.
- If you are not from SSIS, or want it delivered to another country, you can go online and order from the shop (it delivers world-wide in 3-10 days.)
- If you can’t buy the book right now, even though you would love to, you can help us (and the animals) by sharing this post, tweeting our shop link, or spreading the word on social media. Do you know librarians, shop owners, or teachers as I am sure they would all be interested. 🙂
- Lastly, there will be an opportunity to donate money in our beautiful donation boxes in the ES, MS offices, and the Main reception. We will also have limited books for sale at our big art party on, May 18th in the auditorium.
ARTWORK by the students.
The goal for this project was not only for students to connect, create, and raise awareness for endangered animals but it was for students to see that ART CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE and so can SOCIAL MEDIA. Lets see how far we can sell our books for a good cause.
Will you be a part of this? If you have bought a book, shared or retweeted please let us know so we can thank you.
