Students spread Christmas cheer across shire
STRATHBOGIE Shire Council has thanked and congratulated the primary students from across the shire who participated in the 2018 Mayor’s Christmas Card Competition.
More than 100 wonderful drawings were received across three categories:
What does Christmas look like in your Town? – The winner was: Alexandra McWilliam, Grade 3.
What do you like most about Christmas with family and friends? - The winner was: Niamh O’Sullivan, Grade 3.
What are your favourite things about Christmas in Strathbogie Shire? - The winner was: Matilda Brew, Grade 3.
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said council was blown away by the high standard exhibited by the students.
“We’d like to congratulate our winners and thank all students who participated in the competition which has helped us to spread the Christmas spirit across the shire” Mayor McClaren said.
The winning designs were printed onto council’s Christmas cards and attached to staff and councillor electronic email signatures, and all entries are currently on display in the council chambers foyer in Euroa and at the Visitor Information Centre in Nagambie.
Mayor McClaren reminds residents that council offices will be closed during the Christmas period from 5pm this Friday, De- cember 21 until 9am Wednesday, January 2.
“On behalf of Strathbogie Shire councillors and staff, we’d like to wish our communities a very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year,” Mayor McClaren said.
