Primary school kids knitting away
EACH year during third term of the school year, the Mt Buller Primary School opens - under the auspices of Mansfield Primary School.
This winter has 59 students in classes from prep to year 6.
The 5/6 students this term have developed their business skills, including research, marketing and financials. They have also all learned to knit. The students are currently madly knitting headbands and scarfs that will be for sale.
“It’s a pleasant change to walk into a classroom and see grade 5/6s knitting,” said class teacher Lesley Dunlop.
