HIPPY Warrawong’s new uniform

HIPPY Warrawong’s new uniform, proudly featuring the salt water animals of the Dharawal Nation.

Last year, the HIPPY Warrawong team, children and carers collaborated with a local Aboriginal artist, Ally Day, from Coomaditchie Aboriginal Corporation, to create an incredible painting showcasing the saltwater animals of the Dharawal Nation. The acrylic painting with shades of blue, green and sunset colours, represent our beautiful South Coast beach coastline.

This painting has spent the past year on display in our Children’s room for all who visit this space it to enjoy. HIPPY Warrawong sought permission from the artist, Ally Day, to reproduce the artwork for a special project.

Now our HIPPY Warrawong team are also proudly wearing the local design as the brand-new HIPPY uniform!

Artist Ally Day was presented with her very own Jacket, featuring this artwork.

It’s such an honour walking around wearing this artwork in the community, knowing that it was the brushstrokes and imaginations of the local children we work with who created it.
