Everyone Matters : Paper Quilt

The theme for this year’s Information Awareness Month; Access Across the Generations reflects the ACT Department of Education and Training’s Strategic Plan Everyone matters.

The Everyone Matters quilt explores the idea that you belong to a growing patchwork of students across generations in the ACT.
