Paintings by Aboriginal inmates were auctioned at PSA House, raising more than $6500 for charity.
The paintings were commissioned by the union’s International
Women’s Day Committee. About 70 inmates from Silverwater Women’s, Dillwynia Emu Plains and Mid North Coast correctional centres contributed works. The theme of Women’s Day, and the competition, was Respect, Safe, Equal.
“As a Prison Officer, I can appreciate the importance of competitions such as these to give women inmates a sense of pride in their work,” said PSA President Nicole Jess. “The Women’s
Day Committee was impressed with the quality of entries.”
