CHRISTMAS DESIGN: Member for Lowan Emma Kealy with Casterton Primary School’s Kira Charlton and her classmates.

Member for Lowan Emma Kealy has used a design by Casterton year-five student Kira Charlton as the cover for her 2018 Christmas card.
Ms Kealy wrote to all primary schools in the electorate, inviting students to design the cover of her Christmas card.
She said she asked students to depict what they loved best about their area, with a touch of Christmas.
“They were also given the opportunity to explain their artwork in 25 words,” she said.
“I wanted a design that meaningfully represented our great part of the state,” she said.
“I loved that Kira captured the significance of Casterton being the birthplace of the kelpie sheepdog, which is iconic to Australia and a significant part of Casterton’s heritage.
“Kira described her drawing as ‘Santa and his kelpie down at the river with a beautiful sunset that we get here in Casterton’.
“The artistic talent of our youth is outstanding.
“It was fabulous to see so many impressive entries, which detailed our local silo art trail, the Grampians National Park including Halls Gap Zoo, many of our local lakes and rivers, sporting passions and our diverse agricultural industries.
“Many other students who produced highly commendable artwork will receive a prize in appreciation for their outstanding efforts.”
Ms Kealy said she received almost 400 entries from 14 schools across the Lowan electorate.
“I will be proudly displaying some of these entries in my electorate office window,” she said.
“This is the fourth year I have asked students to help design my Christmas card.
“I look forward to more fabulous designs in the years to come.”
