Help­ing hand for car­ols night

Geraldton Guardian - - NEWS -

For the first time Car­ols By Can­dle­light or­gan­is­ers have asked lo­cal high schools to help them with ad­ver­tis­ing, lead­ing to one stu­dent’s art­work earn­ing a place on pro­mo­tional posters all over town.

Year 11 Ger­ald­ton Se­nior Col­lege stu­dent Azranni Ab­dul Ma­jid en­tered the com­mit­tee-run de­sign com­pe­ti­tion and won or­gan­is­ers over with her lit­eral in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the Car­ols By Can­dle­light theme.

She de­signed a pair of hands hold­ing a can­dle, which chair­woman Glenda Boys said fit­ted the event theme very well.

“We put them all up on a wall and did a sort of process of elim­i­na­tion to find what would suit,” Ms Boys said.

“There were some re­ally great ideas but we thought two hands hold­ing a can­dle seemed per­fect.”

Ap­proach­ing schools is a first for the event com­mit­tee, which is try­ing o lock in stu­dent par­tic­i­pa­tion for 2019.

Car­ols by Can­dle­light will be held on December 9 at Mait­land Park, with chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties start­ing at 5pm and car­ols at 7pm.
