This was a whole-school maker project. Students made a net with a giant Nancy loom at lunchtimes, before and after school, in the libraries. The loom was then placed on the school Terrace for a week at lunchtimes during Culture Week. On the last day of Culture Week the net was tied to the walkway. On this day and several days following, students wrote on coloured strips their hopes, and these were then tied to the net, so others can read the strips and share positive hopes for the future.
