Real displays for Jumpers and Jazz
STUDENTS are seeing double at St Mary's School this week as wooden cut-outs of students and teachers lay sprawled around the campus.
Some flaunt jeans and gloves, while others have begun the full makeover of woollen attire in preparation for Jumpers and Jazz in July.
With the school theme being What a Wonderful World, teacher Kristin Byrne said St Mary's had taken the angle of how wonderful its school was.
"Each silhouette represents that the school is a wonderful place and shows the individuality of each student," Miss Byrne said.
The cut-outs will be placed along the Palmerin St entrance of the lower campus during the festival, with two steel-frame trees to accompany them.
Each class has its own cut-out to decorate.
Students in Years 1, 2 and 3, and teachers posed for the silhouettes, and Sophie Collins said she was getting the hang of the wool-wrapping technique.
"At first it was tricky, I kept doubling over, but now it's fine," Sophie said.
