Narrabri RSL sub-branch has presented Narrabri West Public School with a copy of the limited edition Centenary of Anzac 1914-1918 book as a ‘thank you’ for the school’s entries in the sub-branch’s Remembrance Day school art competition.

Narrabri West Public School was a standout in the competition with students from the school awarded 18 of the 28 prizes.

Twenty schools from across the area, ranging from pre-schools to high schools, took part in this year’s competition.

Prize categories included dioramas, artworks and media and powerpoint displays for different age groups

RSL sub-branch president Gary Mason said it was the most entries the competition has drawn.

“It was such a good result and Narrabri West Public School had the most entries,” Mr Mason said.

“Every year the competition keeps growing and the standard is getting very high.”

The total number of entries was 782 across the area.

Mr Mason and sub-branch secretary Sheryl Barnes presented Narrabri West Public School principal Tania Nichols with the Centenary of Anzac 1914-18 book to be displayed in the school’s library.

“It gets the children thinking and learning about Remembrance Day and why we commemorate it,” Mr Mason said.
