The Easter hat parade is a rite of passage for most Geraldton students, with classes of kindy and pre-primary children showing off their hard work to family this week.

Mt Tarcoola Primary School has hosted an Easter hat parade for more than two decades, but the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to the tradition last year.

Children from the school’s early childhood centre spent days decorating hats with feathers, paint, glitter, pom-poms, cellophane, buttons, sequins, stickers and anything else they could find to stick on their creations.

No parade would be complete without music, and students and teachers bopped to Easter-themed tunes as they showed off their hats.
