The show this year is a partnership between the P&C, students and class teachers.

The art show is being held as an exhibition, and every student from kindergarten to Year 6 will have an artwork displayed. These will then be offered for pre-sale (via the Qkr! App) or on the evening of the show.

All artworks are priced at $10. The event is a fundraiser, with all money going back to the Kingscliff School and students. Donations to the P&C are welcome!

There will be also artworks for sale by local Bundjalung artist Steven Bekue, along with at least one large scale collective artwork, produced by a class. These will be put to a silent auction with the winner announced at 7pm on the night.

P&C Co-President Asha Lambert Patel told The Echo, ‘All the kids have worked so hard on their pieces. They are just buzzing with excitement!’

Co-President Angela Watson said the art show was both a fundraising and community event. ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to bring the school and broader community together and to celebrate the children,’ she said.

‘We are encouraging everyone to bring a picnic and spend time with the Kingscliff Primary School Community.’
