The team at Mount Druitt Hospital’s children’s ward were thrilled to receive beautifully framed artworks from the Operation Art program.

Each year schools across New South Wales are invited to participate in Operation Art, an initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in association with the New South Wales Department of Education.

The program provides a forum for schools and students to demonstrate their visual arts achievements through travelling exhibitions, before they are displayed at Westmead Hospital and donated to various hospitals.

These delightful pieces of art donated to the children’s ward at Mount Druitt Hospital will brighten up the walls in the department, provide distraction for young patients and help to create an inspiring healing environment.

The selected artworks have been produced by children in the Western Sydney area and each one comes with a description of the piece and the school involved.

“These creations are joyous and will certainly revitalise and enhance our public and patient areas within the ward,” said Mildred Villason, Nurse Unit Manager.

“We were excited to receive these donations and are very appreciative for the support from the Operation Art team.”
