A group of Warrnambool students are excited to share their inspirational messages of hope and resilience.
The year eight Brauer College students have been working hard to create almost 40 'Jars of Hope' during their term one English classes.
Teacher Tony Curtis said each Jar of Hope featured an eye-catching, creatively-designed label and about seven craft sticks, also decorated with positive quotes of hope and support.
"Given what they went through last year (with coronavirus lockdowns), I wanted them to feel like they could not only empower themselves with a sense of positivity and resilience, but also help other people when they're having a rough day," he said.
"The idea is to go to the Jar of Hope, dig out a positive quote or affirmation and hopefully feel a bit better."
Mr Curtis said the students were "extremely proud" of their completed project.
"They can see the practical and authentic usefulness of the jars, especially in supporting people who are going through difficult emotional and mental health circumstances," he said.
"I have almost 40 jars from my brilliant students, with each jar being a representation of the thoughtfulness and consideration of its young creator."
