In Stop Press last week we launched our History Panel Art Competition.
Thank you to Jill, a parent at BPS, for developing the concept. Jill briefed Parent Club, the staff and the students about the purpose of the competition and the importance of student input into the creation of the panels.
As mentioned in last week's newsletter, Beaumaris Primary School has been awarded a grant from the Public Records Office Victoria (PROV) to create heritage panels which will be permanently installed around the school to display our history. There are many aspects of the school’s history for which we do not have photos or other images. This is, in part, because many irreplaceable photographs and other items of memorabilia were lost when the school administration building burnt down in 1994. Therefore, we are inviting our students to imagine for themselves what those events might have looked like. Students in each year level will be invited to create a picture. Each year level, from Foundation to Year 6, will be given a different historical theme or event for their art piece. The winning entries will be displayed permanently on the heritage panels.
Entry forms are available at the office.
Students in years Prep to 6 can collect an entry form relevant to their year level. Students will receive information describing the requirements for their representation of the events in our history.
Good luck everyone. We look forward to receiving your entry.
