Art with a Social Conscience at Pedare Christian College

Each year we grant a group of South Aussie students the special privilege of being our lead ‘angels’.

The role of the AnglicareSA angels is to help us with our extensive fundraising endeavours. This year our angels herald from Pedare Christian College in Golden Grove, a school with a long history of partnering with us to help the community.

As part of the school’s year ten curriculum students are asked to conduct a community based ‘personal project’. Designed to get students out of the classroom, the personal project is a great way of encouraging students to get out of their comfort zone and interacting with the community at large.

Being an angel school is a big responsibility, and one that all of our Anglican schools take very seriously. But few students have embraced the idea with such vigour and verve as Shea Stringer.

A talented photographer and painter, Shea has decided to use her personal project to host a special, one-off exhibition to help raise funds for our services.

“I personally enjoy photography the most, but I really love art as well because it feels more expressive,” Shea said.

Shea specialises in landscape photography and has recently even taken a special trip down to Victor Harbor to snap a few sunsets.

“I’ve taken a lot of photos of landscapes and sunsets recently, all of which will be available for sale at the exhibition.”

A down to earth and socially conscious young lady, Shea is passionate about the work that we do here at AnglicareSA.

“I really like the way that AnglicareSA offers such a broad range of services,” said Shea. “Like help for the homeless, an issue that we studied at school last year, and counselling services for those who have experienced loss and grief, which I think is really important.”
