Con­test was last straw

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

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.”
