PRE-PRIMARY and primary school children from local schools and crèches have entered the Kingsburgh Child and Family Welfare’s art competition.

“The competition is an annual fund-raiser for the organisation. Entries are R5. Kingsburgh Child and Family Welfare celebrate its 70th anniversary this year and the art competition enters its 21st year. “Suitably, this year’s theme is ‘It’s a celebration’ and we are expecting over 1 000 entries,” said Oriel Andrews.

Andrews said the organisation is collecting the art from the schools on 21, 22 and 23 September and the pictures will be displayed at Seadoone Mall from 28 September to 5 October.

Judging is undertaken by the Upper South Coast Art Society and the formal prize giving will be on 3 October at the mall.

In each category three prizes are awarded - first, second and third place and there is also a highly commended accolade. Andrews does the convening and can be contacted on 031 916 2274 (office hours 8am to 12pm) for more information
