Pri­mary school posters cel­e­brate the en­vi­ron­ment

Southern Telegraph - - News -

Pri­mary school stu­dents in the Kwinana and Rock­ing­ham area dis­played their keen en­vi­ron­men­tal knowl­edge when they pro­duced posters show­ing as­pects of our lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment. Preser­va­tion of our beaches, stop­ping pol­lu­tion of our oceans and pro­tec­tion of our favourite lo­ca­tions, such as Pen­guin Is­land, fea­tured in many of the posters. Spon­sored by the Kwinana In­dus­tries Coun­cil and co­or­di­nated by Perth NRM, the poster com­pe­ti­tion gen­er­ated over 100 en­tries from more than six schools. The four lucky win­ners Bethany Pease Bun­ga­ree Pri­mary, Dilly De­war Leda Pri­mary School PrePri­mary, Avah ah-Chong Golden Bay Pri­mary and Nye M. from Ore­lia Pri­mary, shared prizes in­clud­ing a tour pro­vided by Rock­ing­ham Wild En­coun­ters. Their win­ning art­work was also on dis­play at the re­cent 2018 KIC Youth Art Awards Ex­hi­bi­tion at the Gary Hol­land Cen­tre, Rock­ing­ham. Kwinana In­dus­tries Coun­cil Di­rec­tor Mr Chris Oughton praised the stu­dents’ ef­forts. “I was de­lighted to see that the stu­dents were aware of the im­por­tance of pro­tect­ing our lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment”, he said. “In time th­ese stu­dents will be the guardians of our en­vi­ron­ment so us­ing art to de­liver pos­i­tive mes­sages, along­side STEM fac­tors will help mo­ti­vate us all”. The com­pe­ti­tion will be held again this com­ing Novem­ber - fur­ther in­for­ma­tion can be ob­tained from Craig Wil­son, Perth NRM Coastal and Ma­rine Pro­gram on 0499 104 377.
