Ban­ners fly proud on Perth street

Narrogin Observer - - News - Michael Traill

A lit­tle flare of the Wheat­belt can be found in the heart of Perth, as ban­ners from Nar­ro­gin and Pin­gelly pri­mary schools hang along Ade­laide Ter­race.

The stu­dent-made ban­ners were se­lected as part of the re­gional Ban­ners in the Ter­race com­pe­ti­tion held each Au­gust.

Nar­ro­gin Pri­mary School art teacher Chris­tine Davies thought the black and white pat­tern of Nar­ro­gin’s ban­ner was a lit­tle dif­fer­ent to the rest.

“Ap­par­ently it looks amaz­ing, Nar­ro­gin’s bit is clearly down the side,” she said.

“Pretty much the whole of the school was in­volved — a fab­u­lous way to show off the town.”

Pin­gelly Pri­mary School deputy prin­ci­pal Noel Cowcher says that his school’s in­spi­ra­tion came from the icon of Pin­gelly, the num­bat.

“They looked around for some icons of Pin­gelly and did re­search on lo­cal places and there’s also a lit­tle Abo­rig­i­nal in­signia on the bot­tom of it,” he said.
