Contest was last straw
St Cadoc’s Primary pupils were clutching at straws but there was nothing for parents to worry about.
The youngsters were simply designing scarecrows for their scarecrow festival.
And the kids certainly rose to the occasion with a host of creative and colourful designs.
Each family from St Cadoc’s Primary were given a challenge to create a scarecrow, all of which had to incorporate the theme ‘orchards’.
The designs were then entered into the South Lanarkshire schools competition and outdoor learning officer Caroline Pitcathley had the difficult task of judging them.
She was very impressed with all the work and thought which went into each design.
The winning scarecrows have now been sent to the Clyde Valley Orchard Farm, where they will be entered into the South Lanarkshire schools competition to win a day out at a farm for their class.
Principal teacher Mrs Stephanie Scot said: “We are very impressed with all scarecrow designs and the families’ creativity, talent and inspiration in completing their family challenge.”
