Julia Creek Mini School - The Orient Express ...


... this year's mini school theme was the Orient Express. I felt like I had been hit by some kind of express when it was finally finshed, but the kids had a great week catching up with their friends as well as working with their teachers.

the image i screen printed (in black) with help onto about 30 T shirts...

.. and as you can see, each day the kids were busy!

... trying to teach the kids traffic safety is a bit tricky when there's not many vehicles driving through  town!!

Year 2 working hard ... with Mrs G ...

Year 3 and 4 working on their collages with Garth

... we also got to see a travelling exhibition ...

... as well as the kids entries - with a 'Farmer of the Year' theme ...

... and again

... very excited mums and kids at the exhibition ...

Karen Price's lovely jewellery ...

Oriental Dragons adorned the windows ...

wire wrapped bonsai trees ... cute idea!

... cool terracotta warriors ...

... the locals in town get vey creative with their old vehicles --- wow!

... just couldn't resist taking a few snaps of our latest mosaic project by Claudia Williams  ~ completed with the help of volunteers from Julia Creek and surrounding cattle properties ..

... and from a distance ...

.... OMG ... how did i get talked into doing it 'Gangnam style '?

... and after such a crazy full-on week ... this is where i'm headed ...

a week of fun ahead

... i'm all packed and ready to head off with the kids to Mini School ... a week of fun, school and activities with their teachers and a week of kitchen duty ... catching up with other mums and hopefully find a latte machine somewhere in town too!!

today i was given a lovely gift from someone - full of wonderful quotes and wanted to share one of those with you ...


when you realise
how perfect
everything is 
you will tilt 
your head back
and laugh
at the sky
