GREEN-fingered pupils at Newlands Primary School will have to invest in silver polish after almost wiping the boards at their local flower show.

The children won prizes in every section at the Cottagers Show from vegetables to drawing.

And the school claimed the overall Cottagers Vegetable Cup.

Primary One pupils Annie Allan Lord and Zander O'Neil both tasted success with their drawings.

Zara Warden also collected a second-place for her decorated wooden spoon.

In the Primary 3/4 section, Eva Sneddon won the vegetable animal competition, while there were second places for Findlay Wyllie in the decorating emoji biscuits competition, and Hamish McAllister in the cress-growing section.

Aaron Prady's liquorice allsorts model won first prize in the Primary 5/6/7 competition, just beating classmates Amy Chalmers and Erin Hanekom, who were second and third respectively.

Isla Ritchie triumphed with her four-line stanza in the poetry competition, just ahead of classmates Amy Chapman and Erin Hanekom.

There was another first with Abbie Louden claiming the computer-made birthday car competition. Amy Chapman was named runner-up.

Despite facing tough competition in the adults section Aaron still claimed a second place for his truffles, and Amy was also placed second for her potatoes.

Leading by example was the school's Mrs Currie who claimed three firsts - for her three courgettes, her five tomatoes and her corn.

She was also placed second in the fruit, five broad beans and cucumber sections.

All of the vegetables that were entered in the competition were grown in the school's polly tunnel.
