Jim­bour on song

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

IT HAS been a great term for the stu­dents, staff and com­mu­nity of Jim­bour State School.

While the stu­dents have con­tin­ued to work hard in the class­rooms there have been some out­side suc­cesses also.

At the Dalby Eisteddfod, Speech and Drama sec­tion, the Jim­bour Prep to Year 2 class won the small schools group speech with their ren­di­tion of the poem Felix the Flea.

It was great to see the pos­i­tive com­ments from the judge, “Such in­cred­i­ble vol­ume for such a small group.” This group also per­formed at the show­case evening at Dalby State High.

Jim­bour State School also won the Most Cre­ative Group Lan­terns at the Dalby De­li­cious and De­LIGHT­ful Fes­ti­val. The hard work put into these lan­terns was a credit to all the stu­dents.

The school is also un­der­tak­ing some work cur­rently to in­stall new gar­dens and wa­ter­ing sys­tems af­ter the P&C re­ceived a large grant from Aussie Cot­ton Farm­ers is be­ing put to good com­mu­nity use.

To fin­ish out the term, last Fri­day, the school had a visit from au­thor Brian Falkner. Some of his works in­clude Bat­tle­saurus, The Su­per Freak and Brain Jack. He vis­ited the school to help build stu­dents’ love of writ­ing and ran work­shops to help im­prove their writ­ing; the school has a num­ber of young as­pir­ing au­thors.

Term 4 is quickly upon us and we are now pre­par­ing for swim­ming and end of year con­cert and re­wards day. We look for­ward to an­other fan­tas­tic term at Jim­bour. — Darin May Prin­ci­pal, Jim­bour State School
