‘Camping in’ a hit at PDSS
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.
