Reg Mombassa’s artwork ‘Onwards and upwards’ dedicted to HSC students

The Class of 2020 have been gifted an artwork titled ‘Onwards and upwards’ by legendary artist and musician, Reg Mombassa, in recognition of the resilience and strength of this year’s Higher School Certificate students.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the artwork is a tribute to the perseverance of this year’s HSC students who had a year like no other.

“Thank you to Reg for creating a piece of art in his iconic style, that reflects on the experience of students and speaks to what is next for this incredible group of young people,” Mitchell said.

“This year, we have seen students’ band together, supporting one another, adapting to change and remaining focused. It was not the year they expected, but I am so proud of the way students have risen to the challenge.”

Reg Mombassa said he was thrilled to create something for the Class of 2020, in recognition of their resilient spirit.

“I wanted the artwork to celebrate all that students have achieved this year and remind them how far they have already come.

“Onwards and upwards is about students harnessing the strength they have uncovered this year and taking that with them into their futures,” Mombassa said.

Mombassa has donated the artwork in support of Stay Healthy HSC, a health and wellbeing campaign aimed at HSC students, schools and families.
