Fun in the sun at Spring Fling

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS -

SPRING is in the air across the shire and St Ge­orge has marked the start of the new sea­son with the lo­cal Spring Fling at St Ge­orge State School.

With plenty of schoolkids, par­ents and fam­i­lies in at­ten­dance, the lo­cal fete put on a show for the com­mu­nity with a daz­zling ar­ray of food, en­ter­tain­ment, lo­cal goods and ac­tiv­i­ties for both young and old.

Mem­bers of the St Ge­orge State School choir per­formed some of the songs they had been prac­tis­ing for some time, while the ju­nior band and rock band per­formed ren­di­tions of clas­sic hits.

Mean­while, the hula-hoop­ers put on a fan­tas­tic dis­play of their tal­ents.

St Ge­orge State School P&C Com­mit­tee trea­surer Ruth Bee­son said the day was a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

“We had a great crowd and the kids pro­vided won­der­ful en­ter­tain­ment through­out the day,” she said.

“It’s the P&C’s ma­jor fundraiser for the year and the weather was just perfect.”

Ms Bee­son said the dessert bar and the scare­crow and fairy gar­den com­pe­ti­tions were huge hits, thank­ing ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pated.

“The com­mit­tee is de­lighted with how it all went.”
