The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) is looking brighter thanks to students from the Kelvin Grove State College (KGSC) Art Department.

The students have donated more than 50 handmade Christmas wreaths and Christmas cards to the hospital to help bring festive joy to staff and patients.

The donations were made as part of a partnership the hospital’s Psychology Department has with the school, which has been running for the past three years.

RBWH Psychologist Clare Pekin said she is very grateful to the students and staff of Kelvin Grove State College for their generosity and thoughtfulness at this time of year.

“Christmas is a joyful time, but for patients in hospital and staff working over Christmas, it can be difficult being away from their family and friends,” she said.

“The decorations and cards provide moving words of encouragement and thanks to our staff.”

As part of the ongoing partnership, art students from Kelvin Grove State College have also created and donated artwork which has been hung in the RBWH Psychology Department.

“The artwork is called Windows to the World and connects the school community to our patients attending appointments in the hospital.

“We look forward to continuing the partnership with the school for many years to come.”
