Pupils from Tarfside and Lethnot Primary schools took part in a summer challenge which saw them build their very own scarecrow.

Pupils were set the challenge by Diane Hemmings, who got the idea after she was given her own DIY scarecrow kit from her grandchildren for Mother’s Day.

The pupils’ efforts - which range from the classic straw-filled scarecrow to the more modern Dementor-themed scarecrow - are currently on display at the Glenesk Retreat.

Speaking about the challenge, Mrs Hemmings said: “Much effort and hopefully a lot of fun went into every scarecrow. Because of this, we have decided not to judge the efforts of the children but to reward each and every one of them for taking up the challenge.”

Each pupil received a book about scarecrows and a gift voucher at a presentation at the Retreat last 
Friday.

The pupils who took part were:-

Tarfside - Anna Graham (P6), Emma Clement (P6), Finlay McHale (P5) and Jack Malcolm (P4).

Lethnot - Cameron Clark (P7), Willa Radcliffe (P7), Roseanna Rolfe (P6), Morgan Hamilton (P6) and Ailey Clark (P3).
