Banners on the Terrace

The Yuna Primary School created a banner for WALGA's Banners on the Terrace Competition. The theme for the year was ‘Members First’ so the children focused on community groups and activities and how these are only made possible by volunteers. They discussed how important people are in the community and how becoming a member of a community group or sporting group makes the Chapman Valley a better place. They also gained inspiration from our new logo. Click here to view Banner entry
