ARTISITC STUDENTS DISPLAY THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF WATER
Westernport Water’s annual school poster competition achieved a new record, exceeding previous years with an epic 355 entries received from all schools within Westernport Water’s district.
‘Valuing Our Water’ was the theme for the poster designs, with many students exhibiting a creative flair for painting and decoupage, and all showing strong awareness towards the importance and value of water.
Westernport Water’s Managing Director Murray Jackson, who’s office overlooks the sea of posters proudly wallpapering the office building, commented “I am very pleased to see such creativity from local students who have all displayed a keen understanding of the value of water and the importance of conserving it for the future. What’s also impressive is seeing all the schools in our district supporting and participating in this fantastic water awareness initiative.”
Congratulations to first place winners Britney Ames from Bass Valley Primary Grades 5 & 6, Harry Anderson from Newhaven Primary Grades 3 & 4, Chari Wagland from San Remo Primary Grades 1 & 2, and Alarna Dean from Cowes Primary Grade Prep, who all represented our region in the statewide judging.
Fourteen finalists were chosen from the four categories, with the majority (8) representing the second smallest school in the district, Newhaven Primary School, who have been awarded with a prize for their outstanding efforts and presented with a GoPro Waterproof video camera.
A special thank you to all schools in the district for participating and contributing to National Water Week 2012, including Bass Valley Primary, Powlett River Primary, Newhaven College Junior, Newhaven Primary, San Remo Primary, and Cowes Primary School, all producing excellent work making it very difficult for the judges.
All finalist posters are available to view on our website at www.westernportwater.com.au, and all finalist artwork will be featured in a soon to be released National Water Week 2013 calendar.
