Berrigan Public students excel in sewing skills

Berrigan Public School have participated in sewing classes at the end of Term 2.

Needles were almost busier than pens in the final week of Term 2 at Berrigan Public School in late June.

Students in Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 were very busy working with resident seamstresses Iris Miles and Jill Petzke on sewing skills.

The students made their own water dragons with the help of the local sewing experts.

Both classes have been studying the novel The Water Horse, written by Dick King-Smith.

As one of the follow up craft activities they are having a great time sewing and creating their water dragon.

The school would like to express a very special thank you to Iris and Jill, for all their help and tutoring in sewing.
