WAS Art now on display at the Mackay Rehabilitation Hospital

Whitsunday Anglican School staff and students’ art work is now on display at the Mackay Rehabilitation Hospital, adding a splash of colour to the recently refurbished hospital walls.

The art pieces depict work from the School’s youngest students through to the School’s Year 12 cohort, as well as staff members Mrs Charlene Slack and Ms Donna Free who are both artists in their own right.

Whitsunday Anglican School Principal Mrs Maria McIvor said the arrangement between the School and Mackay Rehabilitation Hospital provided both organisations a number of benefits.

“We were delighted to be asked to provide student and staff art work to go on display at the Mackay Rehabilitation Hospital,” she said.

“This has given us the opportunity to showcase the talent of our art students and staff while also giving the hospital community something to appreciate also.”

Mackay Rehabilitation Hospital CEO Mr Chris Walsh said the hospital was thrilled to receive the collection of student and staff art work which has been mounted in the hallway off the main hospital entrance.

“This art is a wonderful showcase of some very talented students’ work and we are so grateful Whitsunday Anglican School has shared it with our hospital community. It will be much appreciated by staff, patients and visitors alike,” he said.

“I would welcome anyone wanting to view the collection to stop by the Mackay Rehabilitation Hospital and take a look.”
