Byron, Tilba, and Quinn create their own landscapes

GYMPIE ART GALLERY and LIBRARY EXCURSION
On Thursday June 24, the 1/2 and 2/3 classes visited the Gympie Art Gallery to view their latest exhibition by local First Nations artists, Songlines – Lines of Connecting, Dreaming and Remembering.
At school, students have been learning how a sense of place can be depicted in artworks. The Songlines artworks showed students how these artists depicted landscape features and direction of travel that were used to remember how local areas were mapped and pathways to destinations.
It was the first time many of the students had visited an art gallery and they were inspired by the experience. The students studied the pieces of work on display and described how line and colour had been used to represent our local ‘place’.
Students also visited the Gympie Regional Library, where students extended their knowledge, learning more about the amazing world of digital technology. Felicia and Gareth hosted a hands-on workshop where students guided Bee-Bot robots around a variety of mazes using their coding and mapping skills.
A huge thank you goes out to the Gympie Art Gallery and Gympie Regional Library for putting on an amazing day. The students were heard saying that it was the best day ever!
As part of the Christian Religious Instruction program, Quiz Worx attended Tin Can Bay P-10 State School on June 18. The entertaining half hour show captured students attention and helped them to explore faith and values using puppets, a performer and music. The primary students thoroughly enjoyed the action-packed performance.
TIN CAN BAY THUNDER
Tin Can Bay State School’s first ever human powered vehicle team is “thundering” along in their journey towards the 24-hour race at this year’s Fraser Coast Technology Challenge in Maryborough in September. They’ve been training hard each week and can be spotted along the walking and bike path beside Tin Can Bay Road Wednesday afternoons after school, keenly honing their skills in the racing trike.
The team of eight students will compete in the junior mixed division for Year 7, 8 and 9 students, and are looking forward to getting amongst the action in this exciting adventure.
