KINDERGARTEN children at Clarence Valley Anglican School may have to address their teacher Sara Filewood as "Your Highness" should she be crowned the 2012 Jacaranda Queen.

Following a lifelong dream, the bubbly 25-year-old feels this year is the right time for her to nominate for the prestigious title.

A born-and-bred local, Sara is eagerly looking forward to the competition in October and said she has been busy putting together fundraising ideas and talking to previous candidates.

"I have always wanted to get involved with the local community and aside from four years at uni I have always attended the Jacaranda Festival," she said.

"Grafton is a beautiful place to live and the Jacaranda Festival is a time when the whole community joins together. People catch up with friends and every- one knows everyone else when they walk down the street.

"If I win I will feel very honoured to represent Grafton as the 2012 Jacaranda Queen."

Sara said her kindergarten class may expect to be taught a few extra details about the Jaca- randa Festival in the classroom.

"Maybe a few curtseys and bows as well," she added.

Sara is sponsored in her quest by the Grafton TAFE International School of Hair and Beauty.

If she wins Sara said she will celebrate her success with her family and friends.
