The Waverley Arts Society held their 43rd Annual exhibition at the Highway Gallery in Mount Waverly from 6-31 October. The exhibition was well attended. Simran received a membership from WAS for being selected as a winner. Her parents Dr. Ina Takkar and Dr. Harpreet Singh are proud of their daughter’s talent and delighted with her achievement.
