Pupils’ ef­forts ac­knowl­edged

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOLS -

DAL­LARNIL State School cel­e­brated its end of year with a con­cert and pre­sen­ta­tion of aca­demic and sport­ing awards.

One of the main awards, the Neil Del­ley Mem­ory Award do­nated by Len and Mar­garet Del­ley in mem­ory of their son, a for­mer stu­dent at the school, was awarded to Year 1 stu­dent, Cather­ine White.

Prin­ci­pal An­drea Kelly said Cather­ine showed the char­ac­ter­is­tics of what the award rep­re­sented – the four Cs – car­ing, com­pas­sion, con­sid­er­a­tion and co-op­er­a­tion.

Among the many awards pre­sented were es­says Years 5–7 wrote on bush­fire aware­ness.

QFES act­ing su­per­in­tend Craig Mag­ick said stu­dents did a fan­tas­tic job.

“The judg­ing by a panel gets tougher each year,” he said.

North Dal­larnil Ru­ral Fire’s Max Pearce, con­grat­u­lat­ing the stu­dents, said the school was one of only a few in the re­gion who par­tic­i­pated.

For the Dal­larnil Ma­sonic Lodge it was an ex­tra spe­cial oc­ca­sion as they pre­sented sport­ing awards. It was 100 years to the day the first meet­ing was held in the hall.
