STUDENTS at Rossmoyne Primary School had a dose of creativity and fun, when they created their own Puppets with Personality in a junior years puppet art project.

Pre-primary to Year 4 students evolved their puppet creations over the term, going from finger puppets to sock puppets, cup puppets, spoon puppets, peg puppets and pop-up puppets creating personalities and poetry to go with their new friends.

Teacher Leonie Banks said the project ended in an election, where children voted for the winning pieces– and had to count the results as a way to incorporate maths into learning.

Boran Yang won first prize with his cup puppet dragon, second place went to Ben Parker who created an Elmo sock puppet and a stick puppet named Selista by Aimee Chen won third prize.

Special awards were given to Kai-Yi Zhuo, Zoe Cook, Rachel Moore and Sasha Tyndale-Powell for their puppets.
