Primary School Show Day 2012

It was that time of year again - time for our daughters' primary school annual 'show day'. Held just like a real country show although on a much smaller scale, it's a fun way for the kids to finish up the end of term.

Country clothes are encouraged, as are entries into the floral and cake decorating displays. Let's not forget to mention the opportunity for them to bring along their pet/s from home for the ever popular pet parade on the oval. Not so many farm animals present this year, however I did spot a few chooks in the crowd. Dogs were definitely the pet of choice and there was much sniffing and leash pulling as the parade commenced...


It's nice to see that those with stuffed pets are included in the parade too...

As with previous years, I was interested to get inside and take a look at  the indoor exhibits and this year's entries did not disappoint...

Some keen competition took place between the children of my veggie grouping buddies...

Flirtatious Medusa?
The theme for this year's art displays was Scarecrows. I just love seeing junior school artwork and their interpretations on the theme..

Well done to the 10yo for her recognition in the cake decorating - 1st place in her level for the student choice awards and a highly commended from the official CWA  judge!

The turtle design she decided on was incredibly simple however I was quite puzzled when I saw her cutting a circle out of her square shaped cake....would baking it in a round tin not have been easier?
Apparently not, one does not get to carve the shape of the turtle shell that way.

Ahhhh, I see. 



Happy weekend and happy spring holidays, people!

  4. What a great idea. Our elementary school used to have a carnival, but it was more about the parents running it and collecting money for next years functions. The kids had fun with the games but I like your school's idea much better.

    1. Ah, yes, our school does have something similar..a fete every second year where the focus is all on making $$. This has a much nicer feel to it in my opinion. :)
