Easter hat parade caps off afternoon

Students at Lighthouse School had a
fun afternoon on Friday, 26 March parading the latest in Easter head gear.

The students marked the upcoming
Easter holidays by donning whimsical creations after spending time with their
teachers constructing the hats.

Hats, hats and more hats bobbed
crazily like a mad hatter’s tea party as students proudly showed off their creative

Ingenuity and flair were very much
evident. Easter bonnets decorated with fluffy bunnies, straw hats with colourful
bows, fancy hats adorned with fresh flowers. Even a globe map of the world
decorated with Easter eggs and straw found its way into the colourful line-up.

 There were Island-style straw
pieces sporting tree bark and newspaper print, lighthouse steeples, bush hats,
balloon concoctions bunny headwear and egg designs.

A joker in any parade will make
people laugh and Year 4 student Jaran Greenidge accomplished that. Sporting a
joker’s hat dangling with Easter eggs, young Jaran made a show of his
stylishness for judges, fellow students and teachers.

One Easter creation with two
crosses reminded parents of the importance of the Easter tradition, while a paper
chicken perched on top with colourful Easter eggs ready to be hatched, was an
eye-catching showpiece.

At the end of the event, students
received prizes for their participation in the event.

Secondary winners
went to Beckman Ebanks and Faith Brandt and primary winners.
