Time of change for Year 7 group

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL NEWS -

MONTO State School held its speech night at the Shire Hall in front of about 100 stu­dents, staff and par­ents.

A high­light was the farewell to the Year 7 group, who marked the end of their pri­mary school days.

There were many prize re­cip­i­ents but two of high­est sig­nif­i­cance were the Aca­demic Ex­cel­lence award, which went to Teala Larsen, and the Ro­tary All-Round award, which was given to Emily Sal­is­bury.

The two girls were also the re­cip­i­ents of the math­e­mat­ics and sci­ence prizes, re­spec­tively.

Teala said she was ex­cited to win the awards and ad­mit­ted to hold­ing mixed feel­ings about go­ing into high school next year.

“I was really ex­cited and sur­prised to re­ceive the Aca­demic Ex­cel­lence award. It was one of my goals for the year and maths is my favourite sub­ject,” she said.

“Look­ing to­wards high school next year, I am a lit­tle bit ner­vous but I am sure it will be good.”

Prin­ci­pal Lau­rel Bowkett was proud to re­flect on a busy and suc­cess­ful year for her school. She said it was good to recog­nise the high achiev­ers but all chil­dren de­served praise for mak­ing progress in their learn­ing.
