Under Eights day very popular at Cannonvale
CANNONVALE State School was a flurry of activity last Thursday, celebrating their version of Under Eights day.
Thursday saw kids participate in a myriad of activities, including: arts and craft, obstacle courses, kindergym, dance and playing with goo or slime.
The police and fire bri- gades were also on hand to provide entertainment, while the fortunate children were also treated to the RSPCA’s emu van – a static van with a series of displays and games.
More than 300 kids took part in proceedings, which was hailed as a resounding success according to co-ordinator Kylie Anderson.
“It allows children to be kids and have a great day,” she explained.
“It’s about enjoying being young. There were lots of smiles and the children arrived very excited for the day ahead.”
Ms Anderson also paid tribute to the dedicated teachers, parents and staff members who made the morning possible.
Other schools in the region completed Under Eights day celebrations last month.
