School Mottos

This website is about the ABC of school mottos: Aimless, Bizarre and Clever. It originated from Alan Waddell's walking every street of nearly 300 Sydney suburbs. He enjoyed discovering the unusual – the odd features of gardens, streets, art, signs, mailboxes, fences and rubbish. Dominant around Sydney are the school mottos. There are over 1,285 photos of school mottos collected on these pages showing the effort and challenge involved in putting a school's aims into as few meaningful words as possible, often with strange results.

Hyperart Thomasson "Bridge to nowhere : The Sydney relics whose purposes are lost to time"
and "Unearthed relics of Sydney and a few hungry trees: readers go hunting"
By Tim Barlass

"We are talking Thomassons, more fully Hyperart Thomasson or Chogeijutsu Tomason, a type of conceptual art named by Japanese artist Akasegawa Genpei in the 1980s. It refers to a useless structure, piece of architecture or relic that has been preserved and has become a piece of art in its own way. They didn't start out as conceptual art but have morphed into something that is viewed as such. Sydney's full of them. There's some 20 different categories of Thomasson."

Having seen many oddities and unusal sights as we walk Sydney, this article aparked our interest.
See this page on our website for some of our Thomassons plus some near or humorous Thomassons.
