Students prepare for craft fair
KIDS are getting crafty in class and learning all about nursing as students prepare projects for the upcoming Maryborough Craftfest.
The annual event is being held at Maryborough City Hall from October 14 to 16 and two schools have already answered the call to get involved in the International Year of the Nurse theme.
Granville State School's Prep classes have been busy learning about the different roles of medical professionals and have created posters depicting their knowledge of nursing.
Parke State School students are researching the history of the profession and plan to develop a historical recount in poster form.
Craftfest is hosted by the Maryborough Artisans and committee member Syrena Scott said it was a great opportunity for students to get creative while learning about nursing.
“We're encouraging all local schools to get involved and create a collage, photograph, drawing or poster in the nursing theme,” she said.
“Stallholders will be dressing up in old-fashioned nurses costumes.”
Maryborough Artisans will donate proceeds to the Maryborough Hospital to buy chairs for the day surgery waiting room, to Blue Care to purchase podiatry equipment and to Look Good Feel Better, a charity that supports local cancer patients.
Entry to the Craftfest is $2. All items on display will be for sale.
