Fremantle Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A ST Jerome’s Pri­mary School stu­dent is get­ting the most from her tal­ent.

Year 5 stu­dent Vrindha Yar­ram­reddy re­cently won the Fra An­gelico Award.

St Jerome’s Pri­mary School visual arts spe­cial­ist teacher Marisa Cipri­ano said it was only the se­cond year the com­pe­ti­tion had been open to pri­mary school stu­dents. “She cre­ated her piece

Mary and El­iz­a­beth us­ing oil pas­tel on card,” she said.

“She was one of 30 stu­dents in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in af­ter-school art work­shops to hone her skills and cre­ate art­work in prepa­ra­tion for the An­gelico Art Ex­hi­bi­tion for Pri­mary Schools.” The theme of this year’s com­pe­ti­tion was ‘Year of Youth’.

Mrs Cipri­ano said she was de­lighted for Vrindha.

“(Her) com­mit­ment to her art­work was out­stand­ing,” she said.

Vrindha plans to con­tinue her art.
