Jimbour on song
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
