Postcards from the Future

16 August 2017

Mosman school children have been busy writing and illustrating how they hope the area will be in 10 years’ time.
‘Postcards from the Future’ is a creative project where primary students are invited to draw their future Mosman on a postcard and high school students write what they want Mosman to be like in 2028.

Sophie, aged 12, wrote “I would like there to be an open air beach theatre and an amazing theme park”.

Damian, aged 13, commented: “I want Mosman to be kind of like New York with awesome lights and towers and a single huge park in the centre”.
The entries with the vision of children and young people will help inform the development of Mosman’s next Community Strategic Plan – MOSPLAN 2018-2028.

A similar competition held in 2012 ahead of the current Community Strategic Plan resulted in almost 300 entries being received from primary and secondary school children.

Children then were asked to describe or picture Mosman in 2050 and ideas ranged from a camping ground near Allan Border “football stadium” to the presence of visitors from outer space.
