Trundle and Tullamore news

Anzac Day

On April 25,  Anzac Day, let us all pause to remember those brave men and women, who fought so valiantly and gave their lives for this country through the many wars.

Let us also give a thought for those that returned to us, a little damaged by what they went through. Lest we forget.

Congratulations James Smith

Hello, my name is James Smith and I am 7 years old.

I have been pestering my dad to build a robot ever since I watched the movie ROBOTS.

When the art competition was made dad gave in and we went to the scrap heap and I was like a kid in a candy store.

Dad kept reminding me that I have a 45kg weight limit.

After we got all of the bits we took them home.

Dad used a piece of scrap to show me how to weld then he supervised as he let me weld it together.

Dad kept saying try again until he though the weld was strong enough.

Once it was built and dad had taken some photos he let me loose with a can of black spray paint.

James entered his robot in the Parkes Waste to Art Competition which was awarded on April 11.

The judges thought that James’ Sparky the Robot was so good that he was awarded a prize – Primary 3D.

Now the best part is that when to competition finishes, Sparky the Robot goes to Orange where he will be competing with winners from other councils for the grand prize. 

James entered his robot in the Parkes Waste to Art Competition which was awarded on April 11.

Congratulations: James Smith (7) won the Primary 3D section of Parkes' Waste To Art competition with his Robot Sparky.
