The Elephant in the Wheatbelt visits Moora


On Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 of July, Moora Community Resource Centre was lucky to be visited by the RAC’s The Elephant in the Wheatbelt and have a mural painted by Rachelle Dustings to promote road safety awareness.
On the Thursday afternoon, Moora CRC had set up a few activities for adults and children when they came down to have a look at the Elephant and mural.
The Elephant has been created using parts from car accidents that occurred in the Wheatbelt to help break the silence surrounding the issue of road safety in the region and is a great talking point for everyone. The mural depicts the Elephant telling drivers to slow down, while three verticordia grandis flowers (Feather flower), which can be found in the Wheatbelt, are seen on the left.
Moora was one of six Wheatbelt towns to have a mural painted when the Elephant visited. The RAC also delivered books written by Sean E Avery titled My Family, The Elephant and Me to the schools and Community Resource Centres all over the Wheatbelt.
If you would like to view the mural, it is located on the south side carpark at Moora CRC and books are available inside.
