Great fun for lit­tle ones at the Big Morn­ing Out

Whitsunday Times - - KIDS -

IT WAS a day full of fun in the sun at Proser­pine State School last Thurs­day morn­ing for the Big Morn­ing Out.

Kids un­der eight came from all over the Whit­sun­days to go wild, with lit­tlies from as far away as Hamil­ton Is­land State School tak­ing part.

The kids got to play with an orig­i­nal type­writer at the hands-on his­tor­i­cal dis­play, wear a bul­let­proof jacket thanks to lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cers and even make their own goop.

The day was made a stunning suc­cess thanks to a great com­mu­nity ef­fort, with the school’s Year 6 stu­dents work­ing on the many stalls.

Proser­pine State School Kennedy house sports vice­cap­tain Chloe Forsyth said a great time was had by all.

“They were like ‘Oh, what’s that! Oh, let’s go do that!’,” she said. “It was pretty funny.” Chloe was given the job of paint­ing faces and said the most popular was “prob­a­bly the princess”.

“I had to do a crown on their head,” she said.

How­ever, she said the best part of the day was “mainly just see­ing all the kids hav­ing fun”.

Cook house sports cap­tain Ash­ton Sin­nott was per­haps the most forth­com­ing when asked what he en­joyed most about the event.

“Get­ting out of class,” he said.

It was not all fun and games though, with Ash­ton put in charge of the fence paint­ing sta­tion.

“I had to fill up the spray bot­tles and put up the pa­per so they could draw on it and stuff,” he said.

FAST FUN: Hamil­ton Is­land State School stu­dents Char­lie Har­vey and Zarah O'Kane got to sit in a po­lice car at Proser­pine State School's Un­der 8’s Day.
