Well known and respected local Noongar artist Peter Farmer  attended North Balga Primary School last  Thursday as a part of the Learn Today… Lead Tomorrow program for indigenous students in the Subiaco District being run by the District staff in conjunction with Des Headland.

Peter took time out of his busy schedule during CHOGM where he had some of his work being displayed along with artists from other CHOGM nations to come and do two painting with the students that were based on local animals and stories.
