Schools raise banners high

HUNDREDS of primary school students marched proudly down Prince St, bound for Market Square, on Saturday morning, displaying banners they had been working on for months.

The outgoing 2010 Jacaranda Queen's Party had the difficult task of judging this year's banner competition which had a Ferries on the Clarence theme, and after walking around the display and talking to the students, they announced the winners.

South Grafton Public School took the top gong with their crepe paper creation.

The judges were particularly impressed by the amount of work that went into the banner as well as the student participation.

St Joseph's Primary School came in second with their collage made of small pieces of fabric and Westlawn Public School was third with their Ferris on the Clarence Post Card banner, which was based upon an actual post card a young girl sent to her grandmother 90 years ago.
