Happy client Bannockburn Montessori picks up tees our students helped their kids design: OSF Screenprint Services and Community Outreach
Message from the Bannockburn Teacher:
The kids were thrilled with the t-shirts!
What an exceptional programme OSF is! The benefits to its immediate students are obvious and measurable, but its outreach extends far beyond its walls. For the past three years, our students at Bannockburn Montessori have had the privilege of working with the talented and committed students of OSF. With their help and guidance, we have built skateboards, painted two giant murals for our school walls and designed and silkscreened our own t-shirts. We have also learnt about the dedication and hard work it takes to be an artist. We have learnt that art doesn’t have to be hanging in a gilded frame in a gallery to be worthy of consideration. This innovative programme should be expanded so it can continue to benefit both its students and the educational community as a whole.
