VCAL Project - Term 2, 2016

Dear Fitzroy Community 

For our senior VCAL project we have proposed to create a space in the school for students to  record music.

We will need egg cartons to use as an inexpensive and sustainable source of “sound proofing”, if you could save up and or gather your empty egg cartons and bring them to the school office it would be really appreciated.

Thank you 

Senior VCAL Team FHS
