The mysterious appearance of the green lanterns after Activities Day in Learning Common 8 had students at the A.S.M.S. felling relaxed and at home. Their presence is taking effect on students as they now think of the refreshed space as the best place to be in the school!
Kay Gillett, teacher and newly named goddess of the lanterns, says the idea behind the lanterns was to make the green common look great and feel great! She visited two cheap shops, bought approximately 42 lanterns and spent $210 dollars on the decorations and was able to decorate the area with the help of some students.
These decorations are really making an impact on the students. “When I have a lesson there I feel happy and relaxed, just like I am at home, minus the pyjamas!”, an anonymous year 11 student says.
