Students win prizes for bike safety art
Winning school students for the bike and scooter safety poster and rap competition for Bike Week 2016 were awarded prizes at a morning tea last Thursday.
Kids across Karratha and Roebourne created colourful posters which promoted safety on the roads while riding a bike or scooter.
The competition was run by the School Drug Education and Road Aware organisation with the help of Scott Cycles and the City of Karratha.
SDERA Pilbara consultant Tania Neeson said it was very difficult to choose a winner out of all the “amazing” entries.
Winners Katie Healey, 13, Darwin Whitby, 11, and Gwyneth Diego, 7 were awarded a scooter.
Runner ups Esther Willet Green, 9, and Eloise Kratochvill, 6, won a bike helmet.
Nine year-old Esther Willett Green from Saint Paul’s primary school said she loved riding bikes and was very proud of her runner-up entry. “I love drawing,” she said. “It’s my talent; I got it from my grandma.”
