Students bloom at school
FLORISTRY student Emma Ferrari's favourite flower is a baby-pink rose.
However, her teacher, Joanne Groombridge, loves the lot.
"I love lilies, roses - I just love flowers," Ms Groombridge said.
"I don't think there's a flower I don't like, and to be surrounded by them all day is great; it's beautiful."
She bought the Floristry School of Australia last year from a retiring woman who was "looking for the right person to grow it".
Ms Groombridge teaches floristry classes at South Tweed Sports each Thursday.
