A cream calico shield shaped banner, with a wooden dowel, and a blue chord attached to it for hanging. The letters for KELMSCOTT, and C.W.A. have been cut out of blue fabric and sewn into place above and below a circle that shows a rural scene, made out of poplin and embroidered. The picture shows the Canning River, flowing across the centre, with orange orchards and grape vines featured in the design. The bridge shown crosses the Canning River close by the school and the church represents the St. Mary in the Valley, an Anglican church.

Historical information

The banner was made by CWA Kelmscott branch member Mrs Wilma Craggs in the 1990s. It was a copy of a previous banner that had been made from Hobbytex paints which were cracking and falling apart. The new banner is made of poplin fabric with a variety of embroidery stitches.
