In Our Own Words

Celebrating the 120th anniversary of St Andrew’s School for Girls, Become: In Our Own Words, follows the school’s journey from 2000 until 2022, including perspectives from the Andrean community.

The statue ‘Become’ was modelled in clay and cast in bronze by sculptor, Heidi Hadaway. It was chosen by Ivanka Acquisto, executive head, for St Andrew’s School for Girls and installed near the Dinaledi Science Centre in 2021.
