Snails make tracks

SNAILED IT: Yahl Primary School Year 2 student Hannah and Year 1 student Imogen took home first place, followed by Year 7 student Jedda in second and Year 3 student Ella in third.

SPEEDY snails slid their way to victory yesterday as Yahl Primary School held its annual Snail Cup.

For the third consecutive year, 133 students were involved in the kid-friendly and quirky event inspired by the Melbourne Cup.

“The Melbourne Cup is an iconic race in Australia and the students all know about it,” Yahl Primary School principal Chris Morrison told The Border Watch yesterday.

“We do not want the children to watch the race if there are accidents or promote betting.
