Awarded for hard work at Dimbulah
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. com.au facebook.com/tablelandsadvertiser
