Art for the Children’s sake: using the Arts in your school for learning and wellbeing
Cutcher, A 2012, 'Art for the Children’s sake: using the Arts in your school for learning and wellbeing', paper presented to the North Coast Secondary Principal’s Conference, Ballina, NSW, 26-27 July.

This session will educate, entertain and perhaps challenge notions of what education can be.
