The Year 8 Leeming students entered the annual Sunflower Scarecrow Competition with their creation made from recycled materials from home, school and the local verge collection.
Leeming Senior High School’s Education Support Centre teacher Voin Zivkovic said the scarecrow project had generated huge enthusiasm among the students.
‘This is a great way to recycle and help save our garden plants from crows in our school,’ she said.
‘The students are excited about Georgie and Rusty being on display at Garden Week and hope other gardeners will pick up some useful ideas on how to protect our environment.’
The competition, which supports local children’s charity Therapy Focus, promises to be a major highlight at Garden Week with 38 scarecrows from across the state on display.
