Sulman in Bloom

A small group of Sulman students and learning support staff turned their hands to floristry this week, making use of some of the delightful blooms and lush foliage abundant in the school grounds.

A half hour stroll through the school gardens and bush reserves in search of plants for our awaiting vases, became a gentle mindfulness exercise – a feast for the senses, with blossoms to smell, colours and patterns to admire and an incredible array of textures to brush through fingers and against palms.

The harvest of camellias, roses, gerberas, chamomile, wattle, casuarina and eucalypt was later creatively arranged by students, one of whom generously shared his knowledge of cutting and preservation techniques for floral displays.

The photos below show the gorgeous arrangements that are now decorating the Sulman classrooms.
