Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

DIM­BU­LAH State Pri­mary School have cel­e­brated the aca­demic and sport­ing achieve­ments of stu­dents at the an­nual pri­mary recog­ni­tion night.

Stu­dents in prep and year 6 re­ceived their grad­u­a­tion cer­tifi­cates as they move into se­nior class next year.

Dim­bu­lah head of cur­ricu­lum Kathy Col­houn said it was a night which recog­nised the ded­i­ca­tion of stu­dents.

“Stu­dents from years 2 to 6 were recog­nised for their in­di­vid­ual achieve­ments,” she said.

“They re­ceived an award for spell­ing, maths and sci­ence. The stu­dents who bor­rowed the most li­brary book re­ceived a book award.”

The sport­ing achieve­ments of each stu­dent were show­cased and cel­e­brated.

“Awards were handed to age cham­pi­ons for dif­fer­ent sports, such as swim­ming, ath­let­ics and cross coun­try,” she said.

Three year 6 stu­dents ran the en­tire evening and thanked the teach­ers and vol­un­teers for all their hard work through­out the year.

Ms Col­houn said the stu­dents were coached be­fore the evening with teach­ers pro­vid­ing some as­sis­tance.

“Teach­ers helped stu­dents write the in­for­ma­tion which they had to say but they ba­si­cally ran the event,” she said.

The evening started with prep and year 1 singing the Na­tional An­them.

While cel­e­brat­ing achieve­ments, at­ten­dees also en­joyed a mu­sic and dance per­for­mance.

The year 2 and 3 choir per­formed Don McLean’s song Starry, Starry Night, which is a trib­ute to the life of artist Vin­cent van Gogh.

Au­di­ence mem­bers sang along with the per­for­mance as the stu­dents dis­played their tal­ent.

The dance club had an up­beat per­for­mance as they show­cased their moves for the au­di­ence.

Ms Col­houn said the an­nual night was al­ways well re­ceived by par­ents and fam­i­lies.

“It is a great for fam­i­lies to cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of all stu­dents while en­joy­ing a the items of en­ter­tain­ment we have each year,” she said. To com­ment on this story: ed­i­to­rial@table­land­news­pa­pers. face­­land­sad­ver­tiser
