Congratulations to the two talented students who have won the Glenroy College inaugural National Reconcilation Week art prize.

Fatemeh Mousavi (pictured above) won the junior prize – a $50 JB Hifi voucher – for her bright and colourful entry of a Dreamtime fish. She says it took hours of painstaking colouring to complete the detailed picture.

“I’m so excited to win. This is the first competition I’ve ever entered,” Fatemeh said.

Year 12 student Kayla Harrison (pictured below) won the senior prize for her stunning canvas artwork inspired by her indigenous heritage. She will also receive a $50 JB Hifi voucher.

The competition was open to all students at Glenroy College. Students were invited to submit a piece of artwork celebrating the spirit of National Reconciliation Week and what it means to them to live on Wurundjeri Woiwurrung land.

A music lover, Fatemeh says she plans to use her prize to buy some new headphones so she can listen to her favourite tunes.

Thanks to competition sponsors Merri Health who provided our College with the generous prize as part of its support of local schools.
