- Childrens' art project
Students bring sparkle to the shire this Christmas season       

Colac Otway Shire is going to be shining brightly this festive season as almost 2500 stars handmade by school children are displayed in shop windows across the district.

Businesses in Colac, Apollo Bay, Wye River, Birregurra, Forrest and Cororooke have all joined in the spirit of the festive season and willingly agreed to hang the childrens' creative and glorious stars.

With every school in the district involved in the project, Council purchased 2500 metres of wire for the stars to be made!

We encourage children, their families and friends to visit the participating shops to admire the students' handiwork. 
Not only does this project promote community pride, we also believe it will encourage families and friends to visit local businesses and shop locally during the Christmas season.
