Artwork Description

Skippedy Skip is a 2.4 metre high, 80 metre long highly coloured metal school fence. The colourful design acts as a link to Glebe’s vibrant contemporary culture.

Glebe Public School turned 150 years old in 2008 and the fence became a celebration of this fact, cementing positive relations between the school and the community. The occasion is also marked in the low wall at the right of the school gates.
