find out is to ask. U can’t make a person Suicidal by showing

Theft disappoints business owner
A well established succulent was
stolen from a vertical garden in the
alley way of a Nuriootpa business
Mrs Diana Wheeler, of Barista
Sista, was “really annoyed” to
discover the theft on Friday
“I spent a lot of money doing that
up... all those plants, that wasn’t
cheap,” said Diana.
“It’s disappointing... when you try
and do something to beautify the
town and people can’t leave things
Diana told The Leader, if the
person responsible wanted the
succulent that bad, she could have
given a slip of it, rather than taking
the whole plant.
“That was an ugly alley and we
made something quite pretty out of
it,” said Diana.
“We put it there for everyone to
enjoy. If it happens again we would
have to make it harder to have them
Diana Wheeler of Barista Sista, Nuriootpa is disappointed that someone stole
a succulent from her vertical garden bed last week.

Greenock Primary School art exhibition raises $483
By Ella Pryor
Greenock Primary School held a
special art exhibition last Tuesday night,
showcasing artwork created by reception
to year seven students.
All the students’ artwork was available
for purchase for a gold coin donation, with
proceeds going towards student’s costumes
for the school’s end of year concert.
The art exhibition raised $483, which
teachers and students are really thrilled
For the costumes the money will go
towards materials, recycling sheets and
clothing from op-shops, plastic and items
such as glue for the hot glue gun.
The $483 equates to roughly $4.50 for
each student’s costume.
The average costume per student has
been around $6 in other years, so the
school has funding to cover the difference.
Each student throughout the school
completed four artworks ranging from dot
painting to perspective drawing and more.
Students had been busy preparing the
work for a whole term.
They learnt about the artist or story
behind each of their styles of work, before
practising for their final piece.
Students’ names were pulled from a
hat early in the week of the exhibition
so that waiters and information officers
could be assigned.
Waiters took care of serving and walking
around with food platters, with the food
made by each student in the school.
This included zucchini slices, 200 cheese
and bacon puffs, 300 pizza and Nutella
scrolls and more.
Over the two hours of the exhibition,
around 100 parents attended, on top of all
the students and their siblings.
Ms Raylene Norley, Greenock Primary
School art teacher, explained the evening
as a ‘really nice social and community
“There was a great community feel
and it was a great event for the children,
teachers and families,” said Ms Norley.
“There wasn’t any pressure on the
students as all the work was already done,
unlike a performance, so they all loved
“It’s a great community spirit here at
Greenock, the parents have been amazing
and help with everything.”
This week students and teachers at
Greenock Primary School will decide what
performance they will put on for the end
of year concert.
