Year 7s say goodbye
INSTEAD of Gangnam Style, it was Gayndah Style for graduating students.
Gayndah State School’s Year 7 class celebrated their graduation by starring in their own music video, dancing to the world-renowned pop song.
The 38 students enjoyed a meal with their teachers for the last time at the Gayndah Bowls Club on December 12.
The students will make the leap to high school next year after an education at the historic primary school.
Several were recognised for their efforts at the awards night the week before.
Sophie Taylor and Sophie Evans won the award for academic achievement, Keeston Kreis received the citizenship award, Cassidy Smith the en- couragement award, Bree Robertson and Jarrason Purcell were awarded for athletic achievements and Sophie Evans received the LOTE award.
The students will no doubt return to Gayndah State School for the 150th celebrations next year.
