Wednesday 31 July 2019 

And the winning name is ….

Wama-rra

 

Congratulations to 10 year old Hamish Wilkinson from Wagga Wagga Public School.

Hamish is the winner of the Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) Redevelopment Stage 3 Name the Crane Competition!

Hamish selected the name Wama-rra because “it is the Wiradjuri word for ‘build’ like the crane is building a new hospital”.
 
Hamish has won a new iPad as well as a tour of the Stage 3 construction site. A banner with the name will be displayed from the 48.9-metre tower crane. Find out more about the tower crane here.

Here’s an opportunity to select a name to feature on Wagga Wagga’s skyline until early 2020.

We’d like some help from school children in Murrumbidgee Local Health District to name the tower crane in Wagga Wagga.

The 48.9-metre high crane has arrived on the Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) campus for the construction of a multi-storey Ambulatory Care Building. The new building is Stage 3 of the $431 million WWHS Redevelopment. Find out more about the building here.
 

The Name the Crane Colouring Competition is open to all primary school children across MLHD.

 

To enter, you simply need to download the entry form here, name the tower crane, briefly explain why you selected the name and colour the crane on the entry form.

A selection of entries will be displayed in the Wagga Wagga Base Hospital foyer.

The competition closes at the end of the NSW school term 2 at 3pm, Friday 5 July 2019.

 

An iPad will be awarded to one child for the best crane name. The winning name will be displayed on a banner on the tower crane.

 

There are also 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for colouring the crane on the entry form.
