'Many communities' from Montague

Montague Continuing Education Centre's student exhibition opened today at Gasworks. Please go and see it. There are linocuts, paintings of great expression and wild ceramic teapots. Montague is for students between 15 to 19 with mild intellectual disabilities. The school won an award for their participation in Round the Bay in a Day for the smallest school with the largest number of participants. Principal Gerry Charles supports possibility and opportunity in every student, as well as being an active member of Port Melbourne Rotary. The artwork pictured here is one of several collective pieces created by the students. The artist in residence programme was funded through the City of Port Phillip's Cultural Development Fund.
