Congratulations to our 2021 Camp Creative award winners!
Every year Camp Creative gives out awards to local students nominated for their achievements in music and writing.
Bellingen Public School students Laura McNeil (L) and James Pullinger (R)
Laura McNeil was this year's recipient of the Bill Lockley Award. A talented cello player, she was nominated by the school for her dedication to her instrument. She will use her award to purchase a cello and is looking forward to joining the Bellingen Youth Orchestra in 2021.
Bill Lockley was the founder of Camp Creative and a passionate violin player. His annual award is presented to a Bellingen Public School student in year six, enrolled to attend Bellingen High School. The award acknowledges their musical talent and is to be used towards furthering their musical interests.
Bellingen Public School student James Pullinger and Repton Primary School student Kai Fitzgerald were recipients of the Bryce Courtenay Award, nominated for their achievements in creative writing.
Bryce Courtenay was a famous Australian novelist and writer, and a long-time teacher and patron of Camp Creative. His award is given to acknowledge talented young writers and to encourage them on their writing journey.
Well done to Laura, James and Kai.
