Rockingham primary school students celebrated the end of term and the Easter bunny countdown in style last Friday.

Koorana Primary School held an Easter hat parade in the final hours before the last bell rang for Term 1.

Students from kindergarten to Year 6 paraded their handmade colourful, creative hats for their fellow classmates, teachers and more than 50 parents who came to watch their little ones strut their stuff.

Deputy principal Samantha Benn said it gave students the chance to practise their technology and enterprise skills.

“Lots of the children chose to use recyclable materials, which gives a clear message of sustainability and it was also a fun way to finish the term and include the families in our school community,” she said. “The children came up with their own ideas, chose the materials they were going to use and then worked through the planning stages and developed a final product, so it was nice for them to be able to showcase the hats, which they made from scratch.” Two major prizes were given for best hats in the lower and upper school before all students went home with a bag of Easter eggs.
