Busy calendar of events at Monto
IF THERE is one thing that can always be guaranteed at Monto State High School, it’s a jam-packed calendar.
During term four, staff and students will be involved in an array of events such as cultural excursions, awards ceremonies, school socials and senior graduation.
Each term, the student council holds a social as a fundraising event for the students.
This term, the theme is Halloween and the students are eagerly preparing for a night of fun.
This year, the Year 6 and 7 students are invited to the social as part of the transition program for the primary students.
The evening will also coincide with the parent information evening sessions for the junior school.
The Year 6 and 7 transition program started in week one of this term, with students from the local primary schools attending science classes.
The transition program is designed to allow for the students to become comfortable with the change to high school and they have certainly enjoyed the science lessons this term.
The senior students are preparing for a cultural excursion to Brisbane to see The Lion King production on November 7.
The G20 will also be on during this time, which will allow the students to see other cultural displays in the arts precinct of South Bank.
The annual awards ceremony will be held on November 13, withWinter Olympian Steven Bradbury as the guest speaker for the evening.
On Friday, November 14, Steven will then attend the Business Breakfast, which is open to staff, students, parents and community members.
This term is certainly a very busy time for all the school community.
GREAT RESULT: Monto State High School kids came second in the interschool competition at the Rockhampton Show this year.
