Creative flair on tap
The Hills mayor Michelle Byrne has launched the Mayor's Creative Arts Project with The Hills Mental Health Interagency to help raise awareness about mental health.
Students in years 9 to 12 are invited to enter a poem, artwork, song, cartoon, film or essay on the topic of mental health.
"This competition seeks to explore the artistic side of local students while looking deeper at the issue of mental health," Cr Byrne said.
