Rochester Secondary College students have embraced a project to provide artworks for patient and family accommodation property Bendigo Bank House.
Aspiring artists Aylee Treacy, Isabella Miriklis, Josephine Brown and Kody Lees said they felt proud to have produced the works.
"I was so excited to have an opportunity to put an artwork in such an amazing place. I feel very accomplished and proud," Isabella said.
Aylee said she was thankful for the opportunity.
"It feels great to complete something like this," she said. "I always have art that I never finish but we completed this and have handed it over."
The two new artworks are inspired by aerial views of the Rochester area using roads and waterways to create a colourful pattern.
They have added colourful, homely touches to rooms at Bendigo Bank House, private, onsite accommodation at Bendigo Health for patients and their families.
Aylee said places like Bendigo Bank House are important for families.
"For myself, I'm going to Melbourne later this year or next year for surgery," she said.
"I'm not sure where my mum will stay but places like this help a lot with that."
Isabella said patient and family accommodation proved very helpful for a lot of people.
"My pop passed away a couple of years ago in Bendigo and we visited him but, living in Lockington, it was an hour or more drive, which was a strain on my family," she said.
"So I'm glad we have places like this for families to stay at."
Bendigo Bank senior branch manager for Elmore, Lockington and Rochester Tracie Kyne said she knew a lot of people who wished patient and family accommodation existed 20 years ago.
"The benefits it gives community members that don't have access to accommodation are great," she said. "It makes their journey through the medical system that much more comfortable.
"When we saw what (this project) would do and how it would involve our communities, we couldn't say no."
Exemplar Health chief executive Clare Shiell said the artworks were an added benefit to Bendigo Bank House.
"We've fitted out (the rooms) to the highest quality standard but really what makes it feel like home is all of the other nice touches that we're working with the community to build," she said.
"The bank sponsored the fit out of the room but we want to make sure the artwork speaks to those rooms.
"In this instance it is a fantastic collaboration with the high school."
