Under the sea
Prep students had a whale of a time at Sea Life in Mooloolabah learning about all things living in saltwater. There were plenty of interactive displays to see and do. They even escaped the jaws of a monster shark!
Choir sings German
At the QCWA International Luncheon the choir got into the theme and sung one whole piece in German. This was a fantastic addition to the themed day and the audience was impressed with the linguistic skills.
The volleyball girls are travelling to the Gold Coast from October 19-21, to compete in the State Junior Cup. Best of luck girls and fingers crossed you ace your way to the top!
There’s nothing better that getting a pat on the back for doing one’s best and students that achieved behaviour and attendance targets over the term were rewarded with a day out in Brisbane.
Student, Lucy Hunter, reported on the celebration day and said that the secondary students had a blast!, “Especially me. On the way there we all sang songs and had a laugh.”
They travelled on the City Cats, and learnt to use their Go-cards – something our coast kids don’t see much of!
“We had to tap on and off at the machine for the start and end of our journey along the river. First destination was Southbank where we either went to the art gallery or the museum. We saw dinosaur bones and all types of creatures. It was so awesome!”
They played Marco Polo at the Southbank pool and built-in beach. “We saw a bearded dragon lizard near the pool, it was so cute. Then it was onto the Queen Street Mall for a shop.”
Also rated highly were stops down and back at Caboolture Service Station! Lucy declared,”This acknowledgement day was surely one to remember.”
