PERSONAL GIFTS: The cancer crusaders group of room 18 at Howick Intermediate has donated artworks they created to Kidz First Hospital. The paintings feature bright colours to cheer up sick children and are based on the artistic technique of Henry Rousseau, who specialised in animals in their natural habitats. Kidz First's Robyn Maria says the art will look amazing in the emergency department where many children have their initial encounter with the hospital.
