Christmas is just around the corner, and I want to take the opportunity to acknowledge the talent and creativity of the over 300 primary school children across my Curtin community who participated in a Christmas card competition this year. Students were invited to create a drawing that reflected what they loved best about Christmas, and there was a wonderful mix of artistic, heartwarming and funny entries, from a Hemsworth inspired Santa on a surfboard, complete with phenomenal abdominals, through to beautiful nativities and drawings of Christmas family traditions like unwrapping gifts around the Christmas tree, family lunches and picnics at the beach. There were also some truly unique drawings, like one of an angry crab attacking a snowman. Of course, with so many brilliant drawings, narrowing down the ones which would feature on this year's Curtin Christmas cards was not an easy task. I want to congratulate Isha B from Scotch College, Jenna D and Fraser S from Woodlands Primary School, Jake from St Thomas's Primary School, Claire from Cottesloe Primary School and Mattea K from St Dominic's Primary School, whose artwork features on this year's Curtin Christmas cards. While all of us know that Christmas is going to be different this year, and there are many families who are not going to be able to travel to see one another, I do wish everybody in Curtin a very safe and happy Christmas.
