Mullum students scoop the pool

Mullumbimby High School students have scooped the pool in the Byron Shire Council’s ‘Walk for Water’ art competition.


Students from across the Byron Shire were invited to enter the competition.


Year 9 student Daisy Buckthorpe won first prize, while Maya Moses, also in Year 9, was runner-up, and Year 8 student Arianne Kasi received a commendation for her work.


Students were handed their certificates at Monday’s assembly by Byron Shire Mayor Cr Jan Barham.


The ‘Walk for Water’ campaign raises awareness for the need for water conservation, and to promote good water-saving behaviours in the community.


“People often forget that we need to think about water conservation here as well,” Cr Barham said.


“Just because it rained last week and everything is green doesn’t mean we can forget about water conservation.”
