THE proud young faces of the stu­dents of Booyal Cen­tral State School are count­ing down the sleeps to Booyal’s big­gest cel­e­bra­tion, the school cen­te­nary.

It has been 100 years since the school first opened and the cur­rent prin­ci­pal Dawn Dolin­ski couldn’t be prouder of her stu­dents.

The po­lite and friendly stu­dents are all very ex­cited to be cel­e­brat­ing the school’s mile­stone of turn­ing 100.

They have all given great rea­sons why ev­ery­one in the re­gion should at­tend their school’s cel­e­bra­tions.

Year 5 stu­dent Kay­lah Love­joy was look­ing for­ward to dig­ging up the time cap­sule.

The time cap­sule has been sealed for 25 years and it will be ex­cit­ing to find out what’s in­side.

Leeroy Warren, of Year 3, said the cel­e­bra­tions were a chance to catch up with friends, look at how the school has changed and then the cake – which prom­ises to be “the best you have ever tasted”.

Char­lie Vella, of Year 2, said: “You will have the best time of your life and we will be putting in a time cap­sule in the ground.”

There will be plenty of things to see and do and Jay­den Hinz, of Year 4, said the school will have “the best car show” for all to en­joy.

“We all like to have a great time,” said Year 3 stu­dent Dek­lyn Love­day.

With plenty of food and drinks on of­fer, Kees Paten, from Year 5, said there will be de­li­cious Coke spi­der drinks to try.

Year 5 stu­dent Jes­sica Warren said there will be dis­plays from the past to present and she be­lieves ev­ery­one will have “an ab­so­lutely awe­some time”.

The cel­e­bra­tion will in­clude plenty of stalls and dis­plays with the Booyal Bun­yips en­cour­ag­ing lo­cals to buy their Kid­ding About the Drought DVD.

The young en­trepreneurs have worked tire­lessly sell­ing their mas­ter­piece to raise funds to help strug­gling farm­ers out west.

Get­ting set for high school, Year 6 stu­dent Alec Wal­lis said they will have “the best en­ter­tain­ment ever and su­per stalls”.

Year 2 stu­dent Aliyah Hinz said “you should come be­cause of the big cake”.

The Booyal Best will be on dis­play on Satur­day, Novem­ber 19 from 9am at the Booyal Cen­tral State school.

Stu­dents from decades past are en­cour­aged to join in on the cel­e­bra­tion and to share their sto­ries on when they were stu­dents of Booyal.

The school will have on dis­play plenty of mem­o­ra­bilia, photos and his­tory of the school.

The stu­dents and school com­mit­tee have worked hard in prepa­ra­tion of the mile­stone cel­e­bra­tion and are urg­ing lo­cals to at­tend.

Mrs Dolin­ski said this will be a great op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents, staff, par­ents and com­mu­nity mem­bers of the past, present and fu­ture to share mem­o­ries, catch up with mates and meet new friends.

“We will be auc­tion­ing politi­cians, prin­ci­pals and coun­cil­lors for the Big Splash Dunkin Game,” she said.

Year 4 stu­dent Mary Vella said “you’ll smile till your jaw brakes, you will have that much fun”.

You will have the best time of your life ... — Char­lie Vella
