Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS -

EAR­LIER this month 140 students con­verged on Eidsvold State School and sur­round­ing fa­cil­i­ties for the bian­nual Cul­tural Camp for small schools.

This was the first year the­camp had been held in Eidsvold and or­gan­is­ers said it was a suc­cess.

“This camp gives the op­por­tu­nity for the students of the lo­cal small schools to meet and mix and al­lows them to take part in ac­tiv­i­ties thatmay not al­ways be avail­able to them,” Boynewood State School prin­ci­pal Vicki Rogers said.

“The camp is or­gan­ised by staff from Eids- vold, Aber­corn, Boynewood, Mono­go­rilby and Bin­jour Plateau State Schools and we thank them for mak­ing this event such a high­light.

“Students had a fan­tas­tic time par­tic­i­pat­ing in all dif­fer­ent types of ac­tiv­i­ties such as sci­ence work­shops, man­ual arts work­shop, golf, lawn bowls, swim­ming, cir­cus per­for­mance, car­toon­ing, RM Wil­liams Cen­tre and heaps more.

“The disco was a great event for the older students and I must say we do have some en­thu­si­as­tic and in­ter­est­ing dancers.”
