Local woodwork artist Colin Clark has produced a series of wood plaques for St Therese’s Community School.Colin Clark's Wood Plaques for St Therese's Community School

The four plaques were commissioned by the school. The largest plaque (above left) is made from river red gum and leopard wood. This will be hung at the entrance to the school.

The three smaller plaques (similar to the one above right) are carved out of one piece of leopard wood and will be hung in classrooms.

Colin said that though the style of work was not, strictly speaking, Barkindji culture it represented part of the church culture which has been adopted by many Barkindji people. Colin added that he was honoured to have been asked to create the works.
