Un­der Eights day very pop­u­lar at Cannonvale

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

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.
