“Unpacking My Suitcase”

For this special exhibition the students of Ms Lehtonen’s Social Studies 10 Art Enriched course prepared a series of suitcases.
The students researched immigration policies and history.
The result of their meticulous research is presented in the form of a fictional character’s suitcase.
Each suitcase contains a carefully researched story and beautifully crafted contents.
For the presentation on Feb 19th, the students “disembarked” the train at the station museum and presented their suitcases to family, staff and media.
