What does a healthy, happy community look like?

This is how kids in Melbourne’s west want their community to look. As part of the new Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital development, students from more than 20 local schools, children’s centres and neighbourhood houses in the west were asked “show us what you think a healthy, happy community looks like.”

The responses were as wonderful and varied as the community we live in. Both primary and secondary school children took part, with 162 boards being painted and used to decorate hoardings around the hospital site.

Students from the following campuses were involved:

  • Copperfield College (Kings Park Campus)
  • Copperfield College (Delahey Campus)
  • Cairnlea Park Primary School
  • Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School
  • Furlong Park School for Deaf Children
  • St Albans Heights Primary School
  • Stevensville Primary School
  • Sunshine Secondary College (Ardeer)
  • Braybrook Maidstone Neighbourhood House
  • Jindi Woraback Children's Centre
  • Creekside K-9 College
  • Keilor Downs Secondary College
  • Harvester Technical College
  • St Albans College
  • Holy Eucharist Catholic Primary School
  • Jackson School
  • Sunshine Special Developmental School
  • Albion North Primary School
  • Albanvale Primary School
  • St Paul’s Kealba Catholic School
