WARWICK Christian College students showcased the tastiest maths assignment ever at their Bargains, Busking and Arts Fair on Saturday.

The students prepared delicious pikelets, topped with a choice of Nutella, fruit, marshmallows, whipped cream and other assorted treats.

Teacher Margie Wood said the exercise was chosen as a fun way to teach kids "life maths".

"They had to write a budget and include their income and expenditure," she said.

"They also had a recipe for eight people and they had to calculate how to change it to feed 100 people.

"There were so many maths activities in it and it was really fun for the kids and they really got involved."

The pikelets proved popular with fair patrons who had spent the morning browsing.

Local artists set up stations to demonstrate and display their work and generous school families donated mountains of goods which were sold in the monster garage sale.

Teacher-in-charge Moira Coates said she was pleased with the number of community members who turned out to support the school's biggest fundraiser despite the wet weather.
