Robertson Electorate: Christmas Card Competition
Every year, in my electorate of Robertson on the Central Coast, we run our annual Christmas card competition. This year was our biggest yet, with over 600 entries from local primary school students. My team and I really loved all of the entries, and we loved them so much that we decided to turn every single one into a personalised set of gift tags, as a way of saying thank you to all of those who got involved.
Today I would like to really congratulate this year's winner, 12-year-old Sienna-Rose from Holy Cross Catholic Primary School. Sienna-Rose had the most beautiful watercolour design of a cockatoo at a local beach. It was an incredibly creative take on this year's theme, 'Our Christmas Day'. Well done, Sienna, on your design.
Pearl McQueen from Avoca Beach Public School won second prize. Ella Baker, aged six, from Erina Heights Public School, was awarded the third prize. Congratulations to both of you on your outstanding designs.
I also pay tribute to some highly commended designs by Chloe Tunnicliff, from St Philip's Christian College; Jessie Edge of Woodport Public School; Kaden Learmonth from Gosford East Public School; Lily Nguyen from Chertsey Primary School; and Taylah Scott from Woy Woy South Public School.
