Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS - ❏ Ge­orge Smith

ABER­CORN State School’s Year 7 stu­dents have reached a cross­roads of their school lives.

But as they look to­wards the daunt­ing prospect of en­ter­ing high school, the school cap­tains have a pos­i­tive out­look.

Kelvin Cooper and Ale­cia Rigg said they both en­joyed their Aber­corn State School years but were look­ing for­ward to the up­com­ing hol­i­days.

“They were happy years in pri­mary school so I am sad in some ways to be leav­ing but in other ways happy to be mov­ing on to high school,” Kelvin said.

“I en­joyed my Aber­corn State School years and I feel happy and sad to be leav­ing,” Ale­cia said.

Ale­cia will be go­ing to Monto State High School and Kel- vin is likely to go to ei­ther Monto High or Rockhampton.

Both agreed their best mem­o­ries of pri­mary school were camps to places in­clud­ing Can­berra, Bris­bane and Lon­greach.

Aber­corn is a one-teacher school with a to­tal en­rol­ment of 21 stu­dents.
