Carnamah and Eneabba students will use their artistic talents to beautify and showcase their shire on a big screen in Perth.

The Shire of Carnamah council unanimously voted at its ordinary April meeting to fund paints and to allow Carnamah District High School and Eneabba Primary School students to create a mural which will be digitally displayed in Yagan Square.

The project is part of shoWcAse in Pixels, formerly Banners on the Terrace, during the annual WA Local Government Association week, when all councils are traditionally given an opportunity to display a banner in the city centre. The North Midlands Project partnered with the schools to create the mural, submitting three choices designed by Act Belong Commit youth ambassador and Carnamah District High School student Jaylin Kite, 17.

The North Midlands Project is a not-for-profit arts, culture, history and heritage organisation based in Carnamah and Geraldton with the aim of making WA known for its “happy, healthy communities and vibrant, connected towns.”

The winning design, depicting a harvester and a windmill, will be painted on the brick wall adjoining the fence next to Elders, facing the Post Office, at 14 Macpherson Street in Carnamah.
