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.

School mu­si­cal

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.
