Does Hurlstone alway win?
No they dont always win – They have won 2 out of 5 years
Should have also won with the “cotton ipad cow” but had no colour like raw cotton so was “too far” out there for the judges
Calvary’s (Carbrook) Archibull is fab – and they are always doing so well at anything they attempt. Good kids, good teaching!

Go Wirribelle you gorgeous thing. Love the hair and socks, how did you cotton on to that idea!
West Pennant Hills your cow is fantastic!!! I love the trendy jeans and the extra bit of gold bling. But best of all I love that the kids got to add bits that reflected their learning – like the cotton touches from Year 1. Go West Penno!
*giggles* GO CALVARY! A working water system? Now that’s pretty cool. One side depicting what it is like with agriculture and the other the devastation that happens, along with noting that we are not the only people out there shows a wider knowledge of the world!
Wirraapang public school is a wonderful support network who not only are there for students and families but for the community.
Students have done a top notch job!!
