Pupils at Glen Dhu Primary School know exactly why they love their dads: because they’re tall, because they play games together, and because they’re a triangle.

While unable to verify the last claim, The Examiner found out that most children knew their dads were the best.

Glen Dhu Primary held a Father’s Day breakfast on Thursday morning, with 5-year-old Gypsy Fitzallen joined by her dad, who, she said, is the best at concreting and roofing.

“He’s really tall and he’s got really dark brown hair,” Gypsy said, adding her favourite things about her dad were that he takes her to her favourite places.

Pepper Mackean, 5, said her dad is a hairdresser and her favourite thing about him was “how he always have time for me”.

“[We] go see waterfalls and caves,” she said.

Meanwhile 4-year-old Primrose Bains said she loved spending time in the kitchen with her dad, cooking butter chicken and adding plenty of chilli.

“He has a job … to be a chef,” she said. “Because he lets me help cook, I like putting the spices in.”

Jonte Margison, 5, said he liked playing games with his dad outside, visiting the concrete trucks, and “feeding the little lamby”.

When asked to describe his dad, Jonte said he looked “like a triangle”, and his favourite thing about his dad was “he’s a triangle”.

And 4-year-old Sam Demarchi said his dad’s job was to “take pictures and eat chocolate”, and Sam’s favourite thing about his dad was they play Star Wars together.

Jaxten Collins said he liked to play outside with his dad. “He has a really prickly beard,” Jaxten said.
