THE creative hats were on for pupils at a Weston primary school as they took part in two design competitions.

Children at Windwhistle Primary School took part in an annually-held contest to design an Easter-themed garden and bonnet, with four winners chosen from across the school’s age groups, from reception to year six.

Organiser Sarah Newbury, chairman of the PTA, said: “The children all love it and get really involved. There are no rules for what they can use, so the gardens varied from real grass to mud, while some even had sweets on.

“One year Easter crept up on us a little bit and we didn’t organise a competition – there was uproar. It’s their competition.”
