The Stewards of the Main Pavilion encourage all Primary Schools in the Valley to enter this prestigious annual competition.

The Schoolwork 2021 competition aims to allow students to demonstrate their resourcefulness by combining their imagination and artistic abilities to produce an artwork worthy of being presented to the show and displayed in the main Pavilion when the show is running.

This year’s theme is ANZAC DAY as the show falls on the Anzac weekend.

“This is a very reverent day for all Australians”, says Chief Steward Yvonne Robards, “and I know that the students of the Primary schools will do their respective schools proud with their entries in the competition, plus one lucky school will be the winner of the perpetual trophy for a year!”.
