Children from two local primary schools are looking forward to a day out at Stithians Lake after taking part in an art competition organised to mark the end of a watersports project.

Funded through the Big Lottery, Carrick Leisure and South West Lakes Trust, Making Waves was a five year project launched in 2007 to develop watersport opportunities for young people in and around Falmouth and Penryn.

The project involved many partners including youth organisations, the police, voluntary groups and local schools.

As the initiative has now come to an end, a competition was organised when all year six groups at participating schools were given the chance to win a day of watersports for their class.

Pupils were invited to enter a piece of art work, drawing, image or collage based around the themes of watersports and Stithians Lake. The idea was that the whole class would get involved and get creative.

The winners of the contest were the pupils at Falmouth Primary School who have won a full day out at Stithians Lake with Mabe Primary coming in second and scooping a half day for all the children.

The two pieces of winning artwork have been reproduced onto large boards which will go on display at the lake and also at the schools. The children were informed of their success at school assemblies when they were presented with the watersports’ vouchers and their copies of their artwork.
