The students at Laggan Public School, along with the children from the neighbouring day care, Crookwell Mobile Children's Service, held an end of term celebration on Thursday, April 11.

The children unleashed their creativity with hat making, colouring-in, songs, and hopped along to a cooking lesson led by Laggan School principal Laura Holt.

With, Easter right around the corner the students designed and created their own Easter hats, complete with bunny ears.

Of course, there was the obligatory Easter egg hunt. The school choosing to hide the non-chocolate variety which were then traded in for the real deal. Last year, the Easter eggs melted in the heat.

Holiday boom

This week and next week will culminate in a massive week of holidays for adults. In between Good Friday, Easter Monday and Anzac Day on Thursday, April 25 there are only three business days.

It's a popular time of year for visitors, as well as the Shire's non-resident rate payers which inevitably lifts trade, tourism manager Andrew Warren said. "This can be a great time for suppliers of staple products such as petrol and groceries."
