Children show safe practices in calendar

REST assured Gladstone, you're in safe hands.

Last week the children of Wicet AGJV employees got their hands dirty for a calendar drawing competition held at the Gladstone office.

As part of National Safe Work Week Australia, the team members asked their children to draw a picture under the theme: "My parents being safe at work".

Twelve children out of the hundreds of entries had their masterpieces selected for a calendar, with two being chosen for the front.

Winners were selected from a 0-6years and 7-12+ age groups, with Michael Fitzgerald, 6, and Kane Costigan, 13, taking home the prize.

Twelve other pictures were selected to make up the calendar.

AGJV has been involved in a number of fundraisers in the past few months, including the Cancer Council Pink Ribbon Day and Anglicare CQ, with the company setting its sights on Movember.

Each drawing in the calendar will recognise a particular charity or fundraiser in the community.

Kane's mother Vicki Costigan said she was really excited that her son's drawing was selected.

"We are very proud, he has always had a talent for art," Mrs Costigan said.

"I work as a 'peggy' at work, and Kane drew a picture of us stopped in the car at roadworks wearing seatbelts, with amber safety lights flashing in the background."

AGJV spokeswoman Hope Surtees said the initiative got the children's creative juices flowing.
