Treasure credits Darwin High School for the opportunity to explore her shared love of art and her interest in Science.
My favourite subject was actually Human Biology (for an art student that’s weird, I know). It is definitely true that in the scheme of year 12 all subjects are not created equally and some are much more demanding than others. When you can find genuine interest for both the subject and your teacher, a perfect pairing is made and for me that was found in learning about how intricate the body is.
One of my fondest memories from Darwin High School was completing my final Visual Art Product. My boyfriend and I painted a massive mural on the walls at the school and it took a full two weeks of work. Every day we would have staff members and students approaching us to talk about how bright it made the area and how happy it made them. The sense of community and creation within those weeks was some of the strongest I have experienced. Treasure Aratema
