HALLS Head Primary School was presented with a framed certificate of appreciation by Mandurah U3A members David Smeeton and Sheila Twine for their history project Mandurah, Milestones and Memories.

Students from the art department, under the guidance of teacher Sonia Doyle created models including thrombolites, indigenous mia-mias and bridges through the years to depict important aspects of Mandurah’s history.

The models were placed on a huge floor map of Mandurah and the estuary to show the city’s development.

Dr Twine said the quality of student work and commitment to the local history project was outstanding.

Mandurah, Milestones and Memories was shown to sell out audiences at the Fish Trap Theatre earlier this year and will be repeated at the Fish Trap on January 17.
