I am about to take my last day of Grade 6 classes as I end my 44 year teaching career, Visual Arts since 1986. I am proud of my students for their creativity and dedication to their artwork over so many years. I congratulate the students whose work features above. There were many other great stuffed toys. I hope that the time taken to hand stitch these original creatures will be something they will remember for many years (like the stuffed felt donkey I made at Primary School, and that was back in the 1960s when families taught children to sew). I say “farewell” to my wonderful Grade six students and wish them every success for the future.
