Yanchep District High School Aboriginal Islander education officer Judith Birchall said the August 5 visit was a Naidoc event and the canvas, once framed, would hang permanently at the school. Other activities on the day included Sharyn Eades� presentation of Laurel Nannup�s art exhibition �A story to Tell� to students in years 4 to 6 and Year 8.

�Laurel Nannup�s exhibit is based on the art form of print making,� Mrs Birchall said.

�The Year 8 students will use lino to create their own art after viewing the presentation.

�I am collaborating with Yanchep National Park, which is very keen to display some of the prints.

�We are looking at having a people�s choice award for the best print � this will be voted by park visitors.�
