Walking into the future

Leo Ma

Parents

A mother taking her child into colourful fog. Future, for every child, is like a colourful and mystical fog. The little boy was looking forward to a cheerful prospect as well as having a fear of exploring the uncertainty alone. His mom was holding his hand, leading him to a beautiful future. Every child has a future of unlimited possibilities, their creativities are borderless.

Street Art

Minnie Wang

Year 13

Graffiti, a word comes from Greek slang, is the origin of art and creativity. Unlike drawing on papers, graffiti involves more freedom. This develops an environment for street art in Melbourne. Ordinary people can share their unique ideas on walls with others. This inherits the origin of creativity generation by generation...

The most beautiful and peaceful moment in a day has to be the time when sun is about to rest.

We should believes that the sun would always and definitely comes out after all this.

There’s an old saying “always keep studying no matter how old you are.” I can see the application of this saying from him, who works in one of the most famous Macarons shops in Melbourne. Everyone is improving, so why we give up studying when we are tired or face difficulties?
