School art winners
Armistice Day, on November 11, was the day the public were invited to view and vote on the Community Art Project which the Australian Light Horse Memorial Park committee has been running since its launch on Wattle Day (September 2).
Members of the community and schools were invited to submit small images to be printed onto tiles, some of which will be used as track markers around the park.
As well as entries from the public, the committee also received works from St Mary’s College, Seymour and Puckapunyal Primary School.
The most popular in the open sections were: (Military) A Soldier by Sarah Mason; (Environment) Golden Wattle and Egg and Bacon Seen in Spring by Jo Davis.
The most popular in the junior section (Military) Slouch Hat by Aiden G (Puckapunyal Primary School) and The Shadow of a War Horse by Tess T (Puckapunyal Primary School); (Environment) Native Australian Eucalyptus Blossom by Emily M (St Mary’s College Seymour).
