Mulgildie masters family atmosphere
MULGILDIE State School might be small but that means it can offer big opportunities to its students.
“It’s such a caring and sharing school. We are all like family here,” principal Kelly Low said.
“We offer excellent student to teacher ratios, so all our kids get a quality education.”
The chance for the next wave of students to join the school family is coming up, with open days on October 28, November 13 and November 24.
“These give a chance for next year’s students to come and join in class for the day,” Mrs Low said.
“It definitely makes them more comfortable when they start out school next year.”
She recommended parents thinking of bringing their children to call the school first.
At the other end of the spectrum, Mulgildie’s Year 6 and 7 students have been going to Monto State High School to prepare for the move next year.
As well as negotiating changes, students have many activities on offer this term.
Swimming lessons are on Fridays, ahead of a swimming carnival with Monto State School on November 10.
“It’s great fun, and good that all our kids will learn how to swim,” Mrs Low said.
“Everyone’s always very happy, as long as the water is warm.”
Graduation will fall on December 6, before the P&C pot luck dinner and sleepover on December 11.
“The sleepover is always an exciting night for the kids,” Mrs Low said.
