Port Lincoln High School was recently approached by the local Bedford Group for assistance with an upcoming funding submission. Bedford are the second largest employer of people with disability in Australia; they were hoping that some of our Photography students might be willing to visit their Coronation Place site and capture images to support their important grant application.
Year 10 Photography students Mattisse Fuller and Giaan Foster answered the call*. Under the guidance of Bedford’s Operations Manager Jo Way, Mattisse and Giaan used their photographic skills to highlight issues that the current ground surfaces create for those with mobility issues, and the close working proximity for those in the current work shed (sample above).
It was a challenging assignment, but one that Mattisse and Giaan handled with enthusiasm, maturity and skill; congratulations, girls – we are very proud of you.
We sincerely thank Jo Way, Fiona Millard and the amazing workers at Bedford Port Lincoln for this wonderful opportunity, and wish you all the best with your funding submission.
* It should be noted that Amelia Ash also volunteered, but was ill on the day of the shoot.
