Mooroopna Primary School enjoy Easter Bonnet Parade

By Shepparton News

There was plenty of colour and excitement at Mooroopna Primary School yesterday morning as students took part in their annual Easter bonnet parade.

Students from all year levels made an Easter hat to wear to the parade, with many showing their creativity with eggs, bunny rabbits, feathers and lots of glitter.

Assistant principal Carla May said the parade was a hit with students and their family members each year.

‘‘It’s a very big school community event with younger brothers and sisters coming along with their hats as well,’’ she said.

The students showed off their creations with a parade first thing in the morning, with each child receiving an Easter egg during their walk.

Ms May said the school also ran a raffle on the day, with a number of hampers filled with chocolate and hand-made goods up for grabs.

‘‘We had many Easter hampers to raffle off, they were filled with chocolate eggs, hand-knitted toys and books,’’ she said.

‘‘The parade is a lovely celebration of our school. It ensures that our children have great memories of Easter time and it is a chance for them to see the wider school community supporting each other.’’
