The School

Pymble Ladies' College is situated on 20 hectares of beautiful park-like grounds on Sydney’s upper North Shore, and is a non-selective, private, independent school for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12.

The Project

Pymble Ladies' College partnered with Bankstown Girls' High School and Sunning Hill School, to produce a unique set of poems. The students at Pymble worked from the Cabinet of Lost and Found, creating object poems that have a special significance to them. 

The Red Room Company is very excited about Pymble's Cabinet of Lost and Found project, as well as the wider implications of three very different schools working together in this interesting way.
