Primary School Show Day 2011

As the term came to an end, it was once again time for our childrens' school annual 'show day'. For a peek at last years' show day and a rundown of the event take a look here.

This year competition was heightened with the introduction of an official 'CWA' judge! (Country Womens' Association). It would seem the pressure was on for our eager young participants and I have to say I think they rose to the challenge!

The following are some attractions that caught my eye today..

Floral entries. Don't you just love the old boot as a vessel?

I wasn't surprised to see these little sheep had come first place in their cake decorating category (grade 3/4). They are just too sweet! If you had a look at last years' post, they were made by the same little 'alien cupcake' maker..just another year older!

Impressive echidna decorated cupcake
The usual array of pets and farmyard animals were present, including some goats, a handsome looking shaggy pony, a snake,  the cutest lamb you ever did see and a sprinkling of poultry including a muscovy duck in a cage, secured on a wagon that was routinely pulled around and around the 'arena' (football oval) by it's enthusiastic young owner! The duck was unperturbed by the whole event, nesting placidly on a pile of straw within it's cagey confines!!

Love this! A clever piggy bank made of recycled materials.

'Goat' 3D art made by the 11yo. Well done!
