Stu­dents add colour to tourism

Pilbara News - - Front Page -

The Kar­ratha Vis­i­tor Cen­tre tourism-themed colour­ing-in com­pe­ti­tion for pri­mary school stu­dents fin­ishes this week.

The com­pe­ti­tion, which asks chil­dren to draw what they love most about liv­ing in their lo­cal area for dis­play by the KVC, has been run­ning in most City of Kar­ratha pri­mary schools since late last year.

The last of the awards will be given out this week.

KVC man­ager Jane Knapp said she was im­pressed by the va­ri­ety of en­tries re­ceived.

“We did get a lot of the beach, but we got some re­ally unique ones of the red dirt and the land­scape — kids’ imag­i­na­tions are un­be­liev­able,” she said.

“It was re­ally good, the dif­fer­ence in things we got, and it re­ally showed what (chil­dren) do on their week­ends. It re­ally does show that we have ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing here.”

The project was funded by Alinta En­ergy through its Pil­bara com­mu­nity spon­sor­ships pro­gram.

The com­pe­ti­tion was de­signed to com­ple­ment the KVC pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion held last month.

The chil­dren’s draw­ings are now on dis­play along the bridge lead­ing to the KVC build­ing.
