Lithgow Primary School Students set to Showcase Local Area through Art Competition
With primary school students doing much of their school work from home in Term 2 under the NSW Government’s staggered ‘return to school’ arrangements, the ‘We are Waste Wise’ Primary School Art Competition will replace the ‘in-house’ Primary School Waste Education Program provided in previous years. This program is unable be offered in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated social distancing requirements.
The art competition contains links to Australian National Curriculum areas Humanities & Social Sciences and Media Arts and prize categories include Overall Winner; Runner up; Best Local Landmark/ Landscape; and Encouragement Award.
“2020 is turning out to be a particularly tough year for families and students in the Lithgow area, due to the combined impact of the bushfires over the summer months and the COVID-19 pandemic. The competition presents a great opportunity for the community to reflect on and celebrate the many reasons the wider Lithgow area is a special place to live” said Council’s Mayor, Cr. Ray Thompson.
