Nullawarre sheds protocol for annual class photos

UNIQUE school photos at Nullawarre and District Primary School ensure that they won’t be left hidden in a drawer.

All 55 pupils had their photo taken yesterday in a hay shed featuring a 1950s Bedford truck. Principal Kane Horwill said this was the second year the school had a one-of-a-kind school photo.

“We wanted a unique photo opportunity that promoted our school to the community and beyond to create positive connections,” he said.

The 1950s Bedford truck has been done up over a number of years by Kelvin Boyle with a local family offering its shed as a wet weather refuge for the photo shoot.

“We all walked away with a great feeling,” Mr Horwill said. “Happy kids, happy staff and happy parents equals great learning.”

Last year’s photo showcased Childers Cove, with staff and pupils standing on the beach.

With a range of extra curricular activities on offer at the school including Japanese and music, Mr Horwill said everyday learning was enhanced.

“We are a small school that offers big opportunities,” he said.

“By doing that we integrate reading, writing, comprehension and mathematics in a variety of different subjects.

“That provides the kids with more opportunities for success.”

South Australian photographer Frank Monger took the photo.
