No place like home


Kwinana Courier - - Front Page - FIRST RE­PORTED AT Com­mu­ni­tynews Tim Slater

A NEW book cel­e­brat­ing the di­ver­sity of the lo­cal com­mu­nity was of­fi­cially launched at the Kwinana Li­brary last week.

My Home, My Place fea­tures art­work by stu­dents from Ore­lia Pri­mary School.

“The core mes­sage of the book is that Kwinana is home to all of us and shar­ing our cul­ture to­gether makes us stronger as a com­mu­nity,” Mayor Carol Adams said.

The art­work was fa­cil­i­tated by art teacher Bev­er­ley Keays with as­sis­tance from Ma­rina Pes­tic­cio and Michelle Davis.

Fam­i­lies of the stu­dents were in­vited to par­tic­i­pate by pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion about their cul­ture, such as food, mu­sic, dance, stories and their lan­guage.

The stu­dents made paint­ings, draw­ings, mu­si­cal shak­ers and other art­works that were pho­tographed and fea­tured in the book.

Copies of the book will be given to the stu­dents.

Pic­ture: Chris Ker­shaw
