Judges have commended Perenjori’s entry in this year’s Banners in the Terrace competition.

The banner features a silhouette of a farmer and his son admiring a golden crop of grain at sunset as pink and grey galahs and Major Mitchell cockatoos fly overhead.

It was the work of volunteer designer Betty Ranarivelo, Perinjori Primary and Morawa District High School students, and the Shire’s community development officer Christina Laue, whose hobby is teaching art and keeping a small gallery.

Ms Laue said Ms Ranarivelo created the design which they projected on to the blank banner before school children and other community members painted it.

“The children always get really excited about participating in the Banners in The Terrace Competition because we won two years ago,” she said.

Every WA City, Town or Shire is invited to enter the competition each year.
