Book Week 2017
OUR school was ablaze last week for CBCA Book Week.
The theme this year was Escape To Everywhere and our students and staff certainly went all out!
We hold a book week parade every year and it is one of our school’s biggest days.
All classes get to show off their costumes and each class votes on a winner.
Our librarian Mrs Angela Peterson and the head administration staff also vote on the best dressed for each year level.
The office at Moranbah State School also creates a magical show every year for the students, with preparations starting as soon as the year’s theme is announced.
This year the office was decorated as the make-believe world of Max from the book Where The Wild Things Are.
The office was in the dark jungle all day, with light shows and jungle vines everywhere, plus all the characters from the book.
Students who have enrolled from other schools made comments such as “this would never be done at my old school”.
Students and families look forward to seeing what the administration team do every year and the office was full of ‘ohhhs’ and ‘ahhhs’ from the children and parents alike.
The schools arts teacher Miss Briannah Alexander has gathered a bunch of our very creative and theatre-loving students, who have been busy for the past two terms getting ready for the school musical The Amazing Adventures of Superstan.
The students have been rehearsing on weekends and after school for weeks.
All props have been made by our students, parents and teachers.
Mrs Erin Russell has been busy at home sewing her life away, making the costumes for our cast.
The musical will be performed in the Moranbah Community Centre for the whole community.
Stanley Marvel may be the clumsiest clot in Megaville, but he’s happy to read his comics and dream his life away.
That is until it’s turned upside-down when he discovers that local hero, The Candy King, is actually a super villain determined to conquer the world with his corrupt confectionery!
Prep students of 2017
Our amazing Preps have been working so hard all year learning their sight words and learning to write.
They have held parties for mums and dads, attended a fairy ball and just enjoyed being a Prep.
It has been such fun at Prep this year at Moranbah State School.
The fairytale ball was a huge success, where our little Preps dress up as a king or queen, prince or princess for the day.
The hall was decorated as a castle and they enjoyed dancing and feasting.
Our fabulous Prep students held a morning tea fit for a king for Father’s Day.
Dads and carers were treated with a day at the barber shop, tie and crown making, self-portraits, and hands-on fun and games.
There were roars of laughter when the students pulled out shaving cream and Paddle Pop sticks, followed by a tug of war.
