Floral Art 

  • It is a good idea to plan your arrangement – find as many flowers as possible and practice exhibits at home.
  • It is the child’s responsibility to do the arranging. 
  • All exhibits must be made by students, not parents.
  • If you have extra flowers, greenery etc, please send along to school so they can be shared with others.
  • All items required for exhibits will need to be bought to school on the day.
  • Parents are invited to school to assist with these arrangements in their child’s classroom. 
  • Each child may enter two arrangements, as well as a pressed flower bookmark (if they have pressed the flowers prior).
