Blackheath Public School billycart derby

It was the perfect day – clear blue skies, warm sun, a sausage sizzle and enough home-made cakes and slices to feed an army.

Add to that dozens of dressed-up primary school kids and their fantastic billycarts, and it was a cracker of an event at Blackheath Public School today.

Mums and dads, grannies and grandpas, teachers, little brothers and sisters – all were on hand to cheer the contestants as they raced around the circuit in the school grounds.
