Easter’s off to a top (hat)

MURWILLUMBAH East Public School students showed off their best Easter hats at a parade on Thursday morning.

Eagerly awaiting the last bell which would mark the beginning of the long weekend, Kindergarten students Ruby Harvey, Lily Marks and Ayla Blatchly were thrilled to be part of the parade.

Year 1 student Jai Blatchly, who wore an egg-style propeller cap designed by his dad, said he loved the parade and the ceremony in which prizes were awarded for the best decorated hats.

Ayla, his sister, was keenly awaiting her chance to devour her hat, which was made mostly of chocolate Easter eggs.
