A COLOURFUL cow statue has been created by Butler students to celebrate their school’s 10th anniversary.

East Butler Primary School hosted a range of activities to mark the occasion this month, including revealing a decorated cow named Mamma Moo.

The artwork represents the suburb’s namesake John Butler, a settler and explorer who visited the area in search of lost cattle.

Staff and students shared a cake, which was cut by longest serving staff member Ann Lockett, oldest student Trinity Allert (11) and youngest student Cohen Fisher (3).

The event ended with games and a school disco, and Ms Lockett described it as an uplifting day.

“It showed our wonderful school community and celebrated their achievements,” she said.

“The teachers provided lots of fun activities and the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves while learning about the culture and history of the school.

“Mamma Moo is a great reflection of the sense of belonging and sharing of the whole school community.”
