Art for safety’s sake

Our Lady of Good Counsel student Marcus Messner's winning entry for the Safe Travel on Metro Trains poster competitionOur Lady of Good Counsel School, Deepdene, student Marcus Messner is no stranger to the artistic spotlight. The Grade 6 student, who created the winning design for Melbourne’s 180th birthday card two years ago, has won the ‘Safe Travel on Metro Trains’ poster competition. Marcus’ winning design depicts a train from the past with one of our modern trains, with the message that rail safety never goes out of date.

Marcus was presented with a PlayStation 4 for his efforts, and has decided to include it in a raffle to raise funds to go towards books for the school library and a turtle for the science room. Well done, Marcus.

Rail Safety Week ran from 14 to 20 August.
