The Embrace is a distinctive wood sculpture situated at the external entrance to
The Gateway Room and the Year 9 building. The Embrace was created by Brad West
from the Western District area of Victoria. It is appropriate that the work was
caved in the Western District where many Good Samaritan Sisters’ ministries have
The Embrace was carved from the trunk of an ancient gum tree that was removed
from The Wetlands area of the Dalton Road Campus at the time of The Wetland’s
blessing and opening in 2011. Two large rocks removed from the vicinity of The
Wetlands are an artistic feature in the centre of the work.
Outspread arms of The Embrace warmly welcome all comers to The Gateway Room and
the Year 9 building.
