Sunbury and Macedon Ranges pupils have made a splash in this year’s National Water Week poster competition.
Drawing to the theme of ‘Water for me, Water for all,’ Macedon Primary pupils Sienna and Olive won first and second prize in the prep category. Three pupils from Gisborne Primary School Lyla, Alana and Gracie all placed in the top three in the grade 1 and 2 category.
Lyla’s winning poster was also awarded second place in the state for her category.
Western Water’s general manager Graham Holt praised the pupils who participated in this year’s competition.
“Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up whose posters showed a great understanding of the theme,” Mr Holt said.
“The standard of entries this year was very high and it’s great to see our primary students learning about the importance of water.”
Entries were received from over 330 primary school pupils across the region. The winners were announced at a special event in Melton last month. All children received a participation certificate as appreciation for their efforts.
