Our school turns 90 this week. And in honour of this milestone all the stage-one (little) kids had to dress up today as either a 1920s or 1890s school student. They looked fabulous! Everyone had a bit of fun raiding the local secondhand stores for olde get-up. This is how E went to school:
It was not too hard to pull this one together: cap, $1, Vinnies Summer Hill; Shirt, $3, Marrickville secondhand store; waistcoat $1, Vinnies Summer Hill; (Scout!) shorts, $2, Vinnies Summer Hill; lace-up Clarkes shoes (a most excellent find), $4, Marrickville.
Tomorrow everyone has been asked to contribute to a cake decorating display. I must admit I thought this may be a bit of an ask on top of the dress-ups ... but I gave it a go and tomorrow E will take his cake to school to put in with the others.
So here's the school emblem, ripped from the corner of our newsletter:
Here's my 'emblem' cake, rendered in licorice.
A little wonky but I must confess to being quite proud of that effort!
