Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

MEG PAICE 13, a Grade 7 pupil at Camps Bay Primary won a gold diploma in the art sec­tion of the 2017 Eisteddfod for her work On Stranger Tides.

Meg, from Vre­de­hoek, has been dab­bling in art since preschool. “I’ve been draw­ing and paint­ing for as long as I can re­mem­ber,” she said.

“It just started out as me try­ing to en­ter­tain my­self. I’m sur­prised. I didn’t think it was go­ing to do this well.”

Meg hopes to turn her pas­sion into a ca­reer. – Tyler Roodt
