Easter Hat Parade a buzz at Tyalla

THERE was crepe paper, cardboard, pretty feathers and outrageously coloured cotton buds left, right and centre at Tyalla Public School yesterday as the annual Easter Hat Parade went off impressively.

Like almost every other school in the region, the 400 students at Tyalla Public School saw out Term I with the special Easter Parade and principal Stewart Copeland couldn’t have been more chuffed.

“This is my first year here at Tyalla Public and I’m so impressed with the students’ creations for the parade,” Mr Copeland said.

Younger pupils were ‘buddied up’ with older students for the creation of their hats.

“It was fantastic to see what the students came up with – there was definitely a broad artistic licence given to the students and the results were fabulous,” he said.

For students who weren’t feeling the hat-vibe, the school also held a Crazy Hair Day.

“Not many people are taking me very seriously with my hair-do today,” Mr Copeland said.

“It’s a great way to make sure all our kids are involved – every student got to do something without feeling left out – and that’s what the Easter Hat Parade is all about here at Tyalla, making sure everyone is involved and has fun.”
