Banners fly proud on Perth street
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.
Narrogin’s banner contains different images made by students in a chessboard pattern.
Pingelly’s banner represents the icon of the town, the numbat.
