Hamburgers tasted like sugar, calves, lambs and goats were roaming the playground and children could hold a beach in their hands.

Everything looked and sounded like magic at Dargaville Primary School's annual Showday.

The day is about celebrating the talent of the students in many different fields - from cake-making, mapping and petal design to calf rearing and lamb leading - and every student had something on display for parents and visitors to admire.

The standard of entries in each category was exceptionally high - particularly the cake-making, says judge Cathy McGlasson.

Winner of the year 6 entry, Rochelle Jeffery, spent two weeks putting together her pumpkin cake with delicious mice crawling out. The event fell on her birthday and she says the self-made chocolate mixture made for an inventive birthday cake.

Calfs, lambs and goats also entered the fun day with their student leaders flaunting them around in style. The grand parade of all the animals and prizegiving took place on the school field and the talented students enjoyed a well-deserved, early Friday finish.
