Talented teams from integrated primary schools have been rewarded for their inspiring scarecrow creations with new saplings for their schools. The creative teams were at CAFRE campus at Greenmount to celebrate their win in the Integrated Primary Schools’ Scarecrow competition at the 2013 Airtricity Garden Festival in Hillsborough, in May.
The competition, which has been running for eight years, is sponsored by Allianz. It is organised by Festival Director Claire Faulkner and the Integrated Education Fund. ‘Scarecrow Square’ has become a feature of the annual show, greeting visitors with a crowd of imaginative creatures from all over Northern Ireland. This year, the schools were invited to enter up to six scarecrows on the theme of storytellers or musicians, or simply to make a traditional figure.
Drumlins IPS characterful creation, Bookworm, won the Overall Winner award.
The trees were kindly donated by CAFRE Greenmount and after collecting their prize from CAFRE’s Martin Wooster, the children joined other winners to explore the campus Nature Trail.
Thank you to sponsors Allianz, and to all who took part and made the competition such a success.
