‘Camp­ing in’ a hit at PDSS

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - @SCHOOL -

THE Prep and Prep/1 stu­dents at Port Dou­glas State School “camped” overnight in the Prep class­rooms to cel­e­brate achiev­ing 100+ days of school and Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der Chil­dren’s Day.

The aim of the ac­tiv­ity was to cel­e­brate who our chil­dren are, their strengths, and how they make our lives and world bet­ter.

Stu­dents and a num­ber of par­ents en­joyed din­ner be­fore a mini-disco and movie night. Sto­ries cel­e­brat­ing chil­dren and their re­silience were shared be­fore ev­ery­one bunkered down for the night.

Ev­ery­one was treated to a pan­cake break­fast the next morn­ing, be­fore head­ing home to re­lax for the re­main­der of the week­end.

Miss Shar­maine and Miss Jade would like to ex­tend a big thankyou to ev­ery­one who helped to make this night a suc­cess.

There were a num­ber of par­ents and grand­par­ents who as­sisted in a su­per­vi­sory ca­pac­ity and/or by help­ing with meals, and helped with the clean up the next day.

It is this in­cred­i­ble fam­ily sup­port that made our cel­e­bra­tion/sleep­over pos­si­ble and helps to make Port Dou­glas State School such a great school.
