KUMBIA CAMP HIGHLIGHT OF THE SCHOOL YEAR
IT HAS been a lively term for students at Kumbia State School.
Senior students recently returned from a school camp to Brisbane.
This a real highlight in the school year and not only due to the wide array of attractions and learning opportunities they get to experience, but because they get to share the experience with their colleagues from Coolabunia State School. Kumbia State School is a proud member of the Kingaroy Small School Group.
As a school Kumbia takes advantage of every opportunity for students to work and play together.
These interactions place Year 6 students in a great position as they prepare for junior secondary as they have a broad range of friends from Kumbia and other neighbouring small schools.
Earlier in the term, Kumbia’s best mathematical minds joined in the fun at the Taabinga Rotary Mathematics Challenge.
For students, this meant working as a team to put many aspects of their mathematical knowledge into practice all while working at the feverish pace of the intense competition.
Not only did students have a great time and loved the challenge of the difficult questions, they also walked away as the winners of the trophy for 2017.
Recently Kumbia students have been working on designing and painting a mural for the playground to show the school values.
These lessons were facilitated by Romaine Undery, who has taught at Kumbia in the past and is a skilled artist.
Students made great use of the time in these lessons to work on the mural and also their own individual pieces.
During the remainder of the term, Kumbia State School will continue to focus on transitions.
Year 6 students are visiting the high schools in Kingaroy and building their understanding of what will be expected of them next year.
Kumbia is warmly receiving some visitors of its own as the Prep class for 2018 make regular trips to the school with the Kumbia Kindy or as a part of the Prep open days.
Seeing the next class of Kumbia students is a real joy.
Everyone at the school is excited to see them wearing their blue and yellow uniforms on their first day of school next year.
