The Robert Burns Scottish Festival School Children’s Art Competition was held in local schools during last term.

Children from St Pats Primary, Camperdown College, St Thomas Primary and Terang College entered their Art works based on Robert Burns poem “To a Mouse” 

Over 200 entries were judged by Jo Kenna and her helpers Penny and Pam.  Co-ordinator of the RBSF Schools program Caroline Menzies was thrilled with the entries and the children’s interpretation of Burns poem, and the great work teachers put into supporting the children. 

“Prep, grade 1 and grade 2 students portrayed their favourite animals and how the care for them their art work included colourful drawings and paintings of mice, chickens and bees.  The Grade 3 to 6 students listened to and interpreted the poem “To a Mouse” and produced some very thoughtful and vivid art works Mrs Menzies said.”

The Children’s Art work will be displayed in local shop windows in Camperdown and Terang during the School holidays and the committee would like to thank Jacinta Lee at Betta Home Living for providing Sponsorship for this competition.

It is hoped that in 2022 the Robert Burns Scottish Festival will be able to provide the fully planned School Children’s program. For further information please contact Catherine O’Flynn on 0407 056 126
