Pupils’ efforts acknowledged
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.
