A GOOD READ: Tahnaya Fenwick with her illustrated children’s book. Picture: Michael FrogleyTHE amazing Higher School Certificate design and technology projects on exhibition in Wagga could be the answer to some troubling social, economic and industrial dilemmas.
But former Kooringal High School student Tahnaya Fenwick may well have solved the most irksome question of them all: what happened to the missing sock in the washing machine?
Apparently, Spike the dinosaur takes them.
At least that is the case with Jye, a fictional character in a children’s book written by Tahnanya for her HSC design and technology major work last year.
Tahnaya’s book Jye and Spike is one of 18 projects on display in the Museum of the Riverina’s historic council chambers site until August 3.
“I was talking with my little cousin about socks and we came up with the story,” said Tahnanya, the 17-year-old daughter of Racquel and David Fenwick.
Jye and Spike tells the story of a little boy who befriends a dinosaur who takes socks from the washing machine and puts them on his spikes.
Tahnaya is currently studying graphic design at TAFE NSW Riverina Institute’s Wagga campus.
She wrote and illustrated the book using hand drawings.
“I like drawing and I have loved kids books from when I was little,” Tahnanya said.
Wagga mayor Rod Kendall on Thursdayofficially opened the exhibition, which has been brought to the city by Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards NSW (BOTES).
