LIVING Waters Lutheran College have taken their work to new heights as part of one of the state’s largest community art project, Banners in the Terrace.

The annual project sees more than 80 local governments submitting banners to be displayed on St Georges Terrace.

It is widely acknowledged as being one of the most colourful and vibrant displays throughout the year.

Nine outstanding entries from community and school groups were displayed as part of this year’s Stretch Art Festival.

Living Waters Lutheran College won the local People’s Choice Award.

Teacher Carla Stubenrauch worked with students to create the design.

“The students wanted to create a design that depicted the Hidden Gems of Mandurah through its beautiful, vibrant sunsets to the unique marine life hidden beneath the ocean,” Ms Stubenrauch said.

Artist Robert Ewing was commissioned by the City of Mandurah to work with community groups and schools to seek out a banner to represent Mandurah.

“This was a great opportunity to encourage people to view Mandurah through a creative, artistic eye and depicting their vision of our Hidden Gems through the excellent designs created,’’ he said.

“Every group who participated created something unique and exciting that told their own story of Mandurah.’’

Deputy Mayor Darren Lee said it was an opportunity to present Mandurah’s historic features by using bold colours and patterns that would inspire visitors who saw the banner in Perth to come down and find out more about the area.

The banners will be on display from July 24 until August 6 and the winners will be announced at the Local Government Convention on August 5.
