Last Friday the Iluka CWA (Country Women’s Association) announced the awardees who had entered its poster competition.
Each year the CWA nominates a country of study for its members – this year the focus is Nepal.
The Iluka branch has for many years organised a poster competition for students at the Iluka Public School.
Students do an in-depth study of the country: its geography, parliament, industry, culture and history.
The posters are then placed on display in the Iluka Museum/CWA rooms, judged by neutral judges and a presentation of awards is given at an afternoon tea.
Guest speaker Sue Fry, who lived in Nepal for some time, spoke about her experiences in the country.
A group of students also prepared and performed a traditional Nepalese dance, appropriately named ‘The Happy Dance’.
