The Cushioning Effect

Nicola’s birds seem to be deep in thought or conversation.

Caitlyn’s lizard stands proudly in the desert.



Our Grade 5 students have made some interesting cushions  and puppets using original designs based on the broad topic “Australia”. They did all the sewing themselves and are to be congratulated on bringing  their different ideas to life. See if you can find the “Black Saturday Bushfires”, “Jail Bird”,  “An Australian Beach”, The Lizard”  and “Crabs”.  I am constantly amazed with the creativity of our students and  by the different things they make within given guidelines. The double faced puppet has a Australian Politics theme. Julia Gillard (with the red hair) is on one side (our Prime Minister) and Tony Abbott is on the opposite side (our Opposition Leader).
