Mulgildie masters fam­ily at­mos­phere

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL ENROLMENT -

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.
