The theme for this year's creative activity sessions and resulting exhibition is Ordinary Extraordinary. The students were invited to respond to the following quote on their creative sessions: Occupation has been defined as 'all of the ordinary and extraordinary things people do at thome, at work and in their community to occupy their time' (Hocking, 2003, p. 190).
