For nearly two years, Emily Callaway has admired the drawings of her student Cheyenne Rondo, who just so happens to have autism.
Now the Anson Street School teacher has come up with a way to highlight Cheyenne's artistic side.
Taking three of Cheyenne's drawings, Ms Callaway created t-shirts which people are able to buy, with all the profits going to the student's family.
"It was a great idea to raise some awareness for the abilities kids with autism have as well as raise money for Cheyenne's family," the teacher said.
"I'm really lucky to have had her for the two years and she's come such a long way. When I first got her she had a lot of major behaviours but her communication has improved so much. It's those little milestones that we celebrate at our school."
The shirts have been a big success as well.
"It's gone a lot bigger than I expected. I've had orders from all over Australia. It's pretty cool when they pop up and it's somewhere up in Queensland or Western Australia," Ms Callaway added.
"A big part of our school's focus is to connect with the community and people sometimes don't understand autism and realise their capabilities. Cheyenne is just one example at the school."
Ms Callaway has asked that anyone interested in purchasing one of the shirts, contact her through her Facebook page.
"The cut-off for orders is still the October 16 and I'll be sticking to it," she said.
"But we might do some projects a bit later as Cheyenne does some wonderful Christmas designs."
