PAGE 15 PRESS JULY 2010 EDITION Community Recreation News Children paint up a storm in Batchelor! As part of the Coomalie Community Government Council (CCGC) School Holiday Program, an intensive 4 days of art workshops at the Batchelor Area School in preparation for this years Lingalonga Festival. Over the 4 day period, approximately 170 children attended from Batchelor and Adelaide River. Creative minds and busy hands painted relentlessly during the school holidays. Under the watchful eyes of Festival Director Marilyn Reeves and CCGC Recreation Officer, Lola, the children created a community banner, 8090 canvasses, an interesting art work made from 44 gallon drums and hand painted dozens of Bali flags (kindly sewn up Kay Nordern). All works had a bug theme in mind. Still to be finalised is a caterpillar to be made out of the remaining 44gallon drums. Not even the public toilets adjacent to the Town Oval survived unscathed! Under the guidance of our resident artist Anna Reynolds, the children were let loose on the loos! Without the assistance of Maccas Paints and the Northern Territory Government, this artistic work could not have been done. The Lingalonga Committee and the Council would like to thank all those that donated their time and expertise to ensure this 4 day event was a success. So many helpers (you know who you all are) thank you! To Principal Matt Watson from the Batchelor Area School, who opened his doors during the school holidays and to the staff that came in to help, a big thank you! It was lovely to see the community involved. Look out for the creations at the Lingalonga Festival on Saturday 31 July 8am til late.
