Pupils keep­ing cool

Isis Town and Country - - News -

CHILDERS State School stu­dents might not be too cool for school, but they can now be cool while be­ing at school.

The Childers Apex Club do­nated $5200 for two air-con­di­tion­ers to the Childers State School P&C As­so­ci­a­tion and Childers Apex pres­i­dent Tim Turner said the do­na­tion was sym­bolic.

“It’s great, it’s some­thing that will be a legacy there. It gives some­thing back to the com­mu­nity,” Mr Turner said.

Childers State School cap­tain Ri­ley Hamey de­scribed the do­na­tion as “re­ally good”.

“It al­lows you to con­cen­trate on your school work, es­pe­cially when you’re do­ing NAPLAN,” he said. “You don’t get headaches and you can just fo­cus on your work.”

P&C pres­i­dent Sharon Bak said the air-con­di­tion­ing was about help­ing the chil­dren.

“If they’re more com­fort­able, they learn bet­ter,” she said.
