BENTON Junior College, Mornington, is testing the power of flowers to “bring the community together”.
The school’s front fence is being used as a base for a spring flower art installation, named Flower Ville in recognition of the Spoon Ville sites that appeared during 2020.
“We chose flowers as a celebration of spring and the uplifting power they have on people,” visual art teacher Michele Marshall said.
“We have invited our school community to contribute a homemade flower and attach it to the fence over the school holidays.”
Ms Marshall urged other schools to establish Flower Villes as a “simple activity which also promotes a connection between students and their school”.
Flower Ville is on the front fence of Benton Junior College in Racecourse Road, Mornington.
