Operation Art is an initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in collaboration with the Department of Education & Communities. The program is in its 21St year and is proudly sponsored by ANSTO and supported by the Sydney Olympic Park Authority. The hospital’s art collection includes sculptures, paintings and prints by well-known Australian artists and the works contributed by Operation Artists are some of the most popular pieces. Operation Art also donates works to regional hospitals so that more patients can enjoy art by young people.

Cronulla PS is proud to support and be involved in such a worthwhile initiative. J. Hackfath


On Tuesday 10th April, the band performed for their very first audience. They performed 4 songs and had some soloists as well. Thank you to the parents and teachers who came along to listen to their music. The students loved showing you how hard they’ve been working. Performing, no matter what level their musical ability is, boosts confidence and self esteem. K. Peyton
