Helping hand for carols night
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.
