Melbourne Girls' College Year 10 Visual Arts Students have created this artwork in support of the right of all children to live in safety, go to school, enjoy their childhoods and have hope for their futures.
Currently, there are many refugee children living in Nauru who don't have this freedom. We would like to see the removal all children living on the island of Nauru by World Children's Day – 20 November 2018.
The year 10 students put in a massive effort and worked together as a fantastic team to instal the 35 metre long mural on Monday 29th October on the exterior of the school gym, which can be seen from Yarra Boulevard. The artwork is comprised of 102 portraits of MGC students (taken by MGC students). Each one represents a child living on the island of Nauru.
