Schools’ colourful creations were ‘amazing’
Rockingham foreshore was abuzz with activity over the weekend when visitors flocked to the area to marvel at the colourful creations of this year’s Castaways Sculpture Awards.
Sunday marked the launch of the schools competition and there were an array of weird and wonderful designs, made exclusively from recycled materials.
Castaways curator Lyn DiCiero said the schools competition was “amazing” and had brought a “different crowd” to the foreshore.
“I was down there all weekend and it was just amazing to hear all of the wonderful comments from visitors,” she said.
“Everyone was just really impressed.”
Ms DiCiero said that the first prize in the primary school competition went to Tranby College Junior School for its piece, Maskanese, which aimed to promote the use of local products and recycling.
Baldivis Secondary College took first place in the secondary schools competition — new for this year — with its piece Hurricane Ga Ga, which explored the issues surrounding rubbish and waste disposal.
More than 65 sculptures lined the beach and surrounding area over the weekend, with many for sale.
